I finished the pendant project and then made two of them for earrings! I’m also designing a pink candy dispenser that looks like a face and the candy comes out of the mouth when you twist the ear. It’s so cool!

About

The 3D Printing

Project Book

 

There has never been a more exciting time to be a young creative CAD designer. Thanks to freely available software like Tinkercad® and affordable desktop 3D printers, young designers can now make and create in ways that were never previously possible. The book contains a variety of tried and tested projects that can be scaled up and personalised to help build important creative and problem solving skills.

The 3D Printing Project Book was created by two sisters (Nicola Herringer and Jo Sommers) who joined forces to write the book they wished existed when they got started with 3D design for 3D printing. It’s designed to inspire young designers to take advantage of this exciting new technology and also to help teachers successfully integrate 3D printing in the classroom. 

 

You will learn about:

Computer aided design and how it has changed the world 

The different types of 3D printers commonly used today 

How to design real products using Tinkercad

Additive Manufacturing (AKA 3D PRINTING) vs subtractive manufacturing 

Different materials used to make different types of products.

The 3D Printing Project book is written for: 

Students aged 10+ who want to 3D design their own cool stuff!

Teachers looking for a fool proof way to introduce 3D printing to the classroom.

Parents who want to encourage their kids in all things steam!

Anyone interested in learning 3D design and 3D printing without the steep learning curve.

About the authors

NICOLA HERRINGER

After beginning her professional journey as a Primary School teacher in Australia and the U.K., Nicola Herringer (M. Ed) ventured into education publishing, authoring highly regarded mathematics textbooks. The reputation she earned for crafting pedagogically robust content, “that kids like AND that get results”, led to a role as Head of Primary Publishing for 3P Learning, where for 11 years she was instrumental in the core content, design and deployment of the internationally successful Mathletics online Learning platform. Nicola’s experiences learning CAD as a hobbyist served as genesis for a STEM/STEAM/Maker platform which evolved into Maker Sense, a portion of which is represented by the 15 projects in this book

JO SOMMERS 

A Creative Director with a background in design, she started her career as an art director at prominent global advertising and marketing firms. She was part of the early start-up community in Silicon Beach (Los Angeles) and became head of marketing at AIO Robotics (the pioneers of “all-in-one” 3D desktop printing). It was here she gained transformative exposure to the burgeoning STEM/STEAM and Maker Education movements. She ran hands-on 3D printing events for a number of years before recognising an opportunity to create content that inspires young Makers to “make to learn” with 3D printing, 3D Design and Maker Education.
