3D Design

What is 3D modeling and 3D printing?

3D modeling and 3D printing is a method of building real objects using computer aided design (CAD) software. Unlike typical two-dimensional sketches, these designs have depth and volume and can be used for a variety of purposes … or just for fun!


With these skills, you will not only learn 3D design, but also learn about engineering concepts in general, how to use the 3D printers, and so much more.

Who is this technology for?

3D modeling and printing are accessible to anyone! You can design your own ideas and create your own objects. If you want to be an entrepreneur, you may test a prototype. If you are an artist, you could make a custom visualization. This technology is perfect for:


  • Artists wanting to create something unique
  • Inventors looking to improve an existing product
  • Entrepreneurs looking to make something new
  • Anyone wanting to have fun with technology

Module Lessons

There are many steps to successful 3D design. To get you started, we’ve created a set of lessons for you to follow at your own pace. Use these lessons to learn how to build a 3D model, how to digitally visualize and share how your model works, the basics of 3D printing, tips for altering your model to make sure your design will print properly, and an introduction to what happens when your design goes to print. So let’s dive right in. Click lesson 1 to get started.
