The students get to know many possibilities of a CAD system. You get an introduction to the surface of the system and can draw after a few minutes their shopping cart chip and provided with their initials. The faster students can also create a second or generate models at their own discretion.
Thereafter, an explanation of the printer, both technically and on the handling related. The students are involved in the pressure of their chips and are allowed to lend a hand.
The following is a presentation of 3D printing: when was it invented, which different technologies exist, in which industries is it already used, what does 3D printing look like in 5 years, what problems can 3D printing give?
Here, too, the students are partially included in relation to their future career choices. At the same time, the students should be motivated to become interested in technology / MINT.
Thereafter, work continues on the CAD system with extended possibilities. It explains loft and sweep functions that can be used, for example, to draw arms or legs. This will create a cartoon character. Pupils get information about what to look for when modeling 3D printing – consistent foresight is encouraged.
Gradually, the skills will be expanded over the weeks. It explains the subtleties of the CAD system, the technical drawing is taught including creating 2D leads with dimensioning and creating a more complex assembly is taught. As models, various come to fruition (see content above). The individual models are discussed in class and tested for printability and optimized. Printable models are printed so students can take their models into their hands, assemble them, and get tangible success.
