Students learn to design and test their own inventions using 3D printing and other fabrication techniques. They operate the Makerbot Replicator 2 to 3D print objects of their own design, pitch their invention ideas to small groups, and iterate on design ideas.
Students also learn to use computerassisted design software tools to create their invention blueprints. They generate models using the Makerbot Digitizer 3D scanner. For final projects, they print designs and create prototypes of their inventions to take home.
