3D printing is being used across the curriculum to support learning. Typically, students are not allowed to interact with fragile objects like fossils and artifacts. 3D printing allows students to touch, hold and even take home models. Students can design and print objects from their readings. They can find and print 3D models to support their research. We will look at beginning design using Tinkercad, a free online design program and Sculptris, a free 3d sculpting program.
