3D Design and Manufacturing - Grade 7

3D Design:
In this class, students will learn the basics of engineering, design, and computer 3D modeling. They will learn how to create digital 3D models that could be printed on a 3D printer.  Students will work with TinkerCad and Inventor which are products of AutoDesk, a software company that makes architecture, engineering, constructing and manufacturing software.

TinkerCad is browser based, so students do not need to download or install software, and is intuitive and easy to use. 
Autodesk Inventor is a free windows based program, click here to download.  
The work that the students complete in this unit will be published on their Wix Porfolios in their 3D Design Portfolio.
