The Build a Better Book Project is all about developing and making stories using anything but written words. These stand alone weekend workshops will utilize different maker technologies to develop multi-modal means of story telling. Technologies covered: 3D design and printing, laser cutting, simple machines, electronics, and pop-up books.
This week: 3D Printing
Have you ever read a picture book and wondered what it would be like if you couldn’t see the pictures? What if you could feel the pictures instead? Work with engineers and artists to design and produce 3D-printed elements to enhance the picture book experience. We’ll learn about 3D design using Tinkercad and print our designs on the 3D printer as we create new tactile elements for children's books. Tech Focus: Tinkercad, 3D printing
