Get ready to design and print your own 3D objects! In this summer camp, you will learn how to create objects with 3D software, 3D scanners, and print them on 3D printers. 3D printers heat up plastic filament and extrude it layer by layer until the object you designed on the computer exists in real life. Throughout this fascinating week, we will design and print a variety of objects, from toys to household items to statues of ourselves!
