Our Journey

It is an interesting and enriching workshop.
It was a very enjoyable experience - Ryan Lim
It was very interesting and highly recommended

Day 1: Introduction to 3D Printing and SketchUp

A 3D printer which prints using plastic filaments of various colours

The printer heats up the plastic filaments so that it melts and prints the object layer-by-layer on the print bed which is heated to around 60 degrees so that the object can cool as it is being printed.

We learnt how to use the SketchUp application to design a handphone stand.

Day 2: Sculptris

Day 3:

We learnt how to prepare a file for 3D printing by using an external programme to convert the .stl file or .obj file into a format that the 3D printer can read

Our Reflection

3D modelling and printing is very useful, and this technology can even be used to save lives. - Jeremy

It was a very enriching experience as it was my first time trying out 3D modelling and I feel that this is a field of technology with great potential to improve our lives in the future. -Ryan Lim

The idea of creating something from scratch right out of a computer design software is very amazing.

It was very helpful learning how to use the basics of the various 3D-software. I am especially fascinated with Sculptris, which allows one to play with an "imaginary clay" to sculpt figurines and cartoon characters. - Ivan
