How does 3D printing work?

3D printing creates a pysical 3-dimensional object from a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) file. Once an object has been scanned using a 3D scanner, it passes through a program called a slicer which converts the 3D model into a series of thin, 2-dimensional layers which when stacked upon each other create the 3D printed model. 

What does 3D scanning and printing allow students and teachers to do:

  • develop creativity, problem-solving, inventive, and original thinking skills
  • brings objects out of the computer screen into the real world
  •  physically manipulate and inspecting their digital creations
  • 3D print historical artifacts, physical models of visual communication designs, typographical maps, molecule and cell structures… the possibilities are endless and are only limited by the students and teachers’ imagination!
