This class truly demonstrates the power of 3D printing. Students will have approximately 1 hour to sketch their designs and receive feedback on the 3D printablity of the design. Then, students will have the opportunity to learn about 3D modeling and how quickly designs can be transformed into digital models. As a class, one design will be selected to be printed during class and subsequently assembled into wearable jewelry. After the class, FISH3D will finalize all sketches and/or 3D models and have finished pieces shipped to the student's doorstep!
