3D printing allows the construction of very fast, unique and complex models. Manufacturers, engineers, artists and even hobbyists can create any models they can imagine. The only limit is the ability to create the file needed for the 3D printer. Learn how to create more complex and imaginative models with new drawing tools, model managing methods and ideas for applying 3D printing.

This curriculum includes everything you need to get your young designers up and running!

These LABCards come in a pack of 25 cards, 5 cards in each level.  For every level there is one overview card and 4 project cards. The project cards are formatted to include 2 step-by-step projects, 2 challenges, and 1 final design project. 

This summer camp version includes 10 sets of lab cards.
