Spring 2017 3D Club (Enrichment class)
Look at what the kids designed...
Friday, February 3rd - The class learned how to use a few new tools... subtracting and splitting. You never know when you will need these, but they will use them.
Friday, January 27th - Line Tools. The students learned how to use the line tools to create their own shapes. There are a few line tools, but we will be working with Polylines and Splines. These tools sketch in 2D, which can than be extruder or made into 3D shapes. Cool stuff.
Friday, January 20th - The students practiced using the different primitives and shape sketch tools. I know what you are thinking... what? Primitives are the names for the standard shapes that are available (box, pyramid, prism, sphere, hemisphere, cylinder, torus, wedge, cone). The sketch shapes are 2D. These can be laid out to any size and than extruder (lifted to create a 3D shape).
Friday, January 13th - 1st Class!!! We spent some time talking about what 3D design is and where it is headed. The students got to work on the laptops and try out the design software. We started with the basics and the kids seemed to do well. They were interested and I think they might be asking you about getting the software to use at home. Don't worry... the software is FREE!!!
