Event Details

Want to learn how to design 3D objects for printing? In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to create and customise a game piece for a set of checkers. We will cover how things are designed in CAD, basic tools in Autodesk , creating a 3D object suitable for printing and saving an STL file ready to print.

Participants will take home their CAD files, which can be printed or further modified, and come back at a later date to pick up a print of the game piece they designed in the workshop. Visitors to The Learning Space at The Connection will also have the chance to play Checkers with the newly-designed and printed game pieces.

This workshop is suitable for young people aged 10-14. 

The Sydney suburb of Rhodes opens its arms to residents and visitors with Rhodes: Creative. Discover a vibrant community bringing creativity and technology to the fore.  Join us at The Connection for a program of masterclasses, workshops, activities and talks that focus on 3D printing, robots, and wearable art and tech. 

Brought to you by the City of Canada Bay Council.  

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
