2D to 3D Printing Event – Grs. 5-8

Last Call for 3D Printing Event!  New “2D to 3D” workshop on November 14, 3:15 – 5:00pm is OPEN for registration.  Each student will bring or create a simple line drawing or handwritten sign consisting of black ink on white paper.  We will photograph the drawing and convert the image to the scalable vector graphics (SVG) format suitable for import to TinkerCAD.  Once imported to TinkerCAD, students will extrude the 2d image into the 3rd or Z dimension.  Then it may be sliced with a planar or curved negative shape, embellished with other 3d models, placed on a pedestal or plaque, etc.  Projects will be printed and distributed to students during the week following the workshop.  Cost:  $10.00 includes instruction (Mr. Pat James) and all materials.  More information and the signup form are on the website.  Here is a simple example:
