An Entire School Year of
3D Design & 3D Printing Fun!

Our courses are recommended for students ages 7-12. 


We start out with the 'Intro to 3D Design & 3D Printing' course, where students learn the basics. 

Once students complete the 'Intro" course, they are ready to move on to more advanced courses on different topics (Architecture, Interior Design, Bridges, Transportation, and a few others). 


The Intro course is 16 units and the advanced courses are 6 units long.  All the lessons are self-pace in video format with accompanying PDF's. The videos are designed to instruct the student when to pause and practice each command.  Most students take about an hour to complete each lesson.


We use a free web-based software, so there is nothing to download or install.  All that's needed is a fast Internet connection, a PC or laptop, and a mouse.

Level: Elementary & Middle School

Duration: 16 weeks




This course offers an introduction to the fundamentals of 3D Design for elementary and middle school students. Students work on hands-on projects and learn how to use Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software to create their designs. They are introduced to 3D printers and learn how to export their files to bring their designs to life.




This course is designed to be completed in 16 weeks. It includes 13 weeks of Lessons and Exercises in video format and 3 weeks for the final Project. The Lessons are designed to introduce students to the various topics included in this course. Exercises allow students to apply what they learned in the Lessons and create a design. The Project at the end of the course allows students to complete comprehensive designs with limited instructions. This basic CAD course assumes no previous design experience or training.




Students in this course learn to:

     ● Combine building blocks to create shapes

     ● Move, rotate and adjust shapes freely in space

     ● Group together a set of shapes to create detailed models

     ● Export files for 3D printing 


STEAM Skills Development:

     ● Creativity

     ● Analytical and Spatial Thinking

     ● Problem Solving

     ● Technical Design

     ● Project Planning




     1.   Getting Started/User Interface.

     2.   Shape Properties/Copy/Paste/Duplicate/Group.

     3.   Using Holes to Subtract Volume.

     4.   The Align and Mirror Commands.

     5.   The Workplane and the Ruler.

     6.   Importing/Exporting Files, and 3D Printing.




This course requires access to the Internet, a computer or laptop, and a mouse. Access to a 3D printer is recommended but not required.
