This box will contain an overview of the site and introduction.
Listen to this podcast introduction to the learning module so you can get started.
1. Develop 3D scans 2. Create 3D models 3. Produce 3D printed products
Tab 1 - What is 3D Design?
What is 3D Design?
Definition of 3D design
Embedded Google Form Survey
Tab 2 - Getting Started
First, let's see what you already know about 3D design. Please fill out this Google form.
Embedded Google Form
You will complete FlipGrid responses for each section of this learning module. Please click the link and get started.
This is the landing page for the site. There will be a brief text introduction and an audio introduction. The picture will be an example of 3D design. The course objectives will be listed on this page. There will be a dropdown menu with the link to each of the five topics. There will also be a search bar.
Tab 3 - 3D Scanning
3D Scanning Basics
There will be a video about the 3D design process. Then below that there will be definition of 3D design. An image of a 3D design will be below the video, and there will be an embedded Google form survey to take information about how users feel about the site and content.
Tab 4 - 3D Modeling
3D Modeling Tools
This page will have the getting started information. There will be a survey to assess the learners' knowledge of 3D printing with an embedded Google form. There will also be an image about the assessment which have an explanation about the FlipGrid evaluation and link.
Tab 5 - 3D Printing
This page will focus on the first objective, 3D scanning. There will be a brief explanation of 3D scanning followed by two sections one for each type. An instructional video will accompany each section.
Types of Scanning
Structure Sensor attaches to the iPad and scans using an app to create 3D scans.
Photogrammetry uses the DSLR camera to create 3D scans.
There are two types of 3D scanning that we will use. They are photogrammetry using DSLR cameras, and the structure sensor using the iPad.
This page will focus on objective two which involves 3D modeling. The design for each of the three pages for the objectives will be similar. There will be a brief introduction followed by content for each of the three modeling softwares with instructional videos for each.
There are several ways that you can create a 3D model. You are going to learn about three different 3D modeling softwares which are TinkerCad, Fusion 360, and Adobe Illustrator
Types of 3D Modeling Tools
Brief introduction to TinkerCad with a hyperlink.
Brief introduction to Fusion 360 with a hyperlink.
Brief introduction to AI.
The focus of this page is objective three. The third objective focuses on the actual 3D printing. There will be a section on slicing with Cura and a section on types of printers both with instructional videos. The last section will be printing examples with photos.
3D Printing Process
Types of Printers
The 3D printing process has several steps that you learn about in this lesson.
