DESCRIPTION
3D printing is the process of making three-dimensional objects from a digital file. This assignment is an introduction to 3D printing with TinkerCAD, a free and easy to use web-based tool. It will give your students the skills to design basic 3D objects for printing. If you do not have access to a 3D printer, your students can still design 3D models and save the design as an image file to turn in.
 
ISTE Standards:
  • Innovative Designer: 4d – Students exhibit a tolerance for ambiguity, perseverance and the capacity to work with open-ended problems.
  • Creative Communicator: 6b – Students create original works or responsibly repurpose or remix digital resources into new creations. 6d – Students publish or present content that customizes the message and medium for their intended audiences.
  • Global Collaborator: 7c – Students contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal (if done in pairs or small groups).
 
Vocabulary:
  • Workplane
  • Axes
  • Scale
  • Pan
  • Handle
  • Rotate
  • Align
  • Group
  • Export
  • Filament
 
To familiarize students with the 3D workplane, guide them through the practice task. The practice task is designed to be a simple activity for students with no prior experience working with a 3D workplane. After completing the practice task, students will be able to place, scale, move, and group shapes while viewing a design from multiple angles.
 
The challenge cards are designed to allow students to explore the concept of 3D Modeling. Each challenge results in a design that can be printed, however printing is not required if you do not have access to a 3D printer. Students can instead share the design file with you online for your review.
 
Files Include:
•3D printing eBook for background info
•3 levels of project prompts
•Editable rubric
•Practice task to learn Tinkercad
•2 sets of instructions
