3D Printing is making a huge difference to how we bring new product ideas to life. If you've ever had an idea or an invention and wonder how to make it real, the speed, flexibility and power of 3D printing may be the answer. After this new Fire Tech Experience - 3D Printing Will Change The World - you’ll soon be designing unique objects that bring your wildest ideas into reality. And they will look awesome too.

In this exciting and jam-packed Experience, learn how to use Computer Aided Design software to develop your own creation – ready for export and manufacturing using a 3D printer or laser cutter!

You’ll learn about Digital Design and Rapid Prototyping techniques. These tools will inspire you to become an successful future inventor and maker. You’ll get to grips with the features of Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, and you’ll learn about design thinking and what you would need to do to optimise your design for manufacture .

By the end of the session, you’ll have the know-how to create designs as gifts, or even for your own online store! We'll be using a free online CAD tool so you can carry on learning and making after the experience.

FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar style, using Zoom, with the main expert tutor showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning. Apart from Zoom, no other downloads are required.
