About this camp

Your child will learn the techniques required to transform a digital cube into a wireframed modelled. To add flesh to their models they will apply the tricks, tips and techniques of digital sculpting followed by using modifiers to apply advanced effects such as mirroring, arrays, deformations and Boolean intersections.

To render their models, they will learn to use lights and cameras. Once completed, they will learn how to render their model into a ‘print ready state’, and how to avoid the numerous 3D printing pitfalls involved in this process by making experimental printing other objects using our 3D printer.

Due to the complexity of production, 3D printing is a slow process, in order not to waste valuable lab time on your child’s camp, their model will be professionally printed and then posted to you.

Please note: This camp requires patience, thought and dedication for the intricate work.

Blender is 3D Modelling software that commercially used, with a full 3D pipeline that is used for prototyping and production ready pieces.
