3D Printing

Learn everything you need to know about 3D Printing and do real-time printing in this two-day hackathon. Conceptualise and design a 3D model that can solve a real problem you face in your everyday life. Make it print ready using a 3D modeling software. Print it out using a 3D printer, take it home and put it to use!


Why should I take up this camp?

3D printing is no longer just a “new and upcoming technology”. Printing of houses, aircraft parts and food are becoming mainstream. This technology is set to revolutionise manufacturing, supply chain and logistics. 3D printing is also heavily being used in education to teach engineering design, 3D modeling and foundations of 2D and 3D geometry. This camp aims to give you an intense exposure to a technology that will be seen everywhere soon. Why not be the early adopter?

Learning Outcomes

3D printer – how it works
3D printer – how to use it to print functional models
3D Modeling Software: User interface, layout and functions
3D Modeling Software: 3D modeling, scaling, orientation
Scaling Software: Resolution, scaling, duplication, rotation
Math: 2D and 3D geometry

Skills Augmented

Critical Thinking: Can I make the correct judgements that put together the different strengths of my team to conceptualise a 3D model, create a 3D representation on a software, and print it out using the capabilities of the 3D printer given to me?
 Creativity: How can I use my everyday inspirations to come up with an original concept?
 Communication: There will be no final product without discussion and negotiation
 Collaboration: It takes a strong team go through the entire process of designing and printing a 3D model
 Time Management: How can we conceptualise, design a realistic 3D model, make it ready for 3D printing and print it out in 6 hours?
