CAD for Beginners: A Hands-On Workshop for Kids (10-14yo)

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.
