This workshop is created for Secondary students, teachers and design novices, and answers questions such as which machine is going to be easiest to use in the classroom and why? How can 3D printing be incorporated into DIY design projects and Design, Art and Science curricula for years 7 to HSC?

Break through the media spin and explore this evolving technology from the perspective of real industry and educational applications.

See examples of what schools across Australia have been doing with their 3D printers and look at machines across the range from the perspective of ease of use and adoption, cost, and application. Please note this workshop does not include individual designing in 3D programs, but demonstrates 3D printers in action.

Take a brief look at SketchUp (commonly used 3D modelling package with schools) and how you can export from this package to generate a 3D print of students work. Plus, look at practicalities and OHS considerations for the classroom environment.

Conducted by industry professional, Lee Bilby from Bilby 3D Pty. Ltd. This program has been assisted by Bilby 3D Pty. Ltd.3D Printing Studio and University of New South Wales, School of Architecture and Design
