Designing for 3D printing is the process of turning an idea into a tangible object. It can be used to create functional parts, prototypes, or even art! Learn the basics of designing for 3D printing in The Forge by making a one-of-a-kind phone stand that reflects your personal style. The best part is that you don't need to be an expert in 3D design to get started. So, whether you're a complete novice or an experienced designer, join us and learn how to make your own unique phone stand a reality with 3D printing.

Tools used in this workshop include computers, TinkerCAD and a 3D printer. Skills used include spatial Reasoning and design.

This workshop will be held at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. on August 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 21, 23, 24, 25 and 26.
