3D Design

3D design helps students generate a good sense of spatial understanding. In this class, students will be using a 3D design platform called TinkerCAD. We will go through most of the tools that TinkerCAD has to offer. We will use all the tools that we have learned and make use of them to create a project every class. Students will be able to take home their creations.

Chris Lee

My name is Chris Lee. I am a freshman at Lynbrook high school. I took a class in 7th grade where I was introduced to TinkerCAD. Soon I became very interested in 3D modeling. Because of that, I began to learn another more powerful software called Autodesk Inventor, which is a professional 3D CAD designing software.

Last summer I was offered an opportunity by Kiditech (a non-profit organization) to teach a 3D designing summer camp as a volunteer. This inspired me to start teaching a class of my own, to kids in my neighborhood. I’ve been teaching for a few months now. 3D design helps to develop strong spatial orientation and thinking.

I’m also very interested in Rubik’s Cubes. Currently, I am an officer at the Miller Rubik’s Cube Club and a founder of Lynbrook Cubing at my school.

Hello there! My name is Andy, and I am an 8th grader at Miller Middle School. I will be teacher aiding the 3D design class. I have taken two courses on 3D designing, and have created many projects in TinkerCAD and AutoDesk 123D. Outside of 3D designing, I am also the Miller FBLA president, I enjoy debate, and I love public speaking. I look forward to seeing you in the class!
