Whether you're building prototypes to show to possible investors, creating custom art pieces, or seeking a visual tool to help you redesign your living space, CAD modeling and 3D printing can help you do it all. This course will introduce students to 3D printing and its uses in a wide variety of fields. Using free CAD modeling software, we will begin with the elements of CAD modeling, from basic objects to interlocking components. We will discuss how to choose the appropriate material and resolution for projects, and how to save time and money while printing. Students will also learn a brief history of 3D printing technology and the different fields where it is used today.

The course will be a combination of lecture and assignments. During each class session, students will be able to work on that week's assignment with the instructor available to answer questions. For the final assignment, students will create their own unique object and optionally 3D print it.

Access to a 3D printer is helpful but not required.
