Topics covered include what is needed (materials, equipment, hardware and software), funding options, and many student samples of successful projects that meet the needs of industry. Areas of interest covered include (but are not limited to) CAD/CAM, 3D printing, laser etching, 3D scanning, PlasmaCAM, CNC modeling and rural school opportunities with digital collaboration.

Four outcomes for session participants:
  • Use a school’s current computers for digital fabrication and rapid prototyping.
  • Determine which digital design and fabrication hardware and software are appropriate in school fab lab studios and maker spaces.
  • Expose students to high-demand and high-paying careers.
  • Implement and run a certified RhinoFabStudio

Note 1: Each student must bring a computer with Rhino 5 for Windows installed.
