3-D Printing Basics

3 PD Hours

  • 1 Gain an overview of the 3-D printing process, from initial sketches to the finished product.

  • 2 Learn tips for organization and classroom management of this complex, multi-step process.

  • 3 Walk away with classroom proven 3-D printing project ideas.

3-D printing is an exciting, design focused application of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) within the art classroom. The 3-D printing process allows students to explore sculptural design using current technologies and art making materials. However, for many teachers, this technology can seem overwhelming. In this PRO Learning Pack, you will gain a foundational understanding of process, learn how to overcome the technological and financial hurdles of starting a printing program, and see several dynamic examples, including low-budget 3-D scanning. If you have ever considered implementing 3-D printing in your art room, this is the place to start!
