  • Which of the following would be less torturous? 
    • Wear someone else's underwear or use someone else's toothbrush?
    • Have an embarrassing message pop up on your computer screen during a presentation to the staff or students?
  • Question #1: How can students create prototypes of designs to show comprehension of class content?
    • TinkerCAD - web-based, any device, free, elementary and up, made by AutoDesk, great for younger students (probably 3rd grade up) -
    • OnShape - web-based, cloud-based, any device, free accounts for educators, middle school and up -
      • Use metric measurements to work effectively with a 3D printer
      • Has a learning center tutorial and great instructional materials available
      • Fundamentals of CAD course - recommends doing the first 3 levels, which will take about 3-4 weeks of ~45 minute class periods
      • Can model with different materials and determine mass, volume, density, etc.
    • SolidWorks - PC only (we confirmed after recording), software, paid, but has an educational price, high school and up, possibly some middle schoolers. -
      • More time consuming to learn
      • Can model with different materials and determine mass, volume, density, etc.
    • AutoDesk Inventor - software, PC only, free for students, high school and up, possibly some middle schoolers -
      • Can model with different materials and determine mass, volume, density, etc.
    • Trimble SketchUp - intermediate grades (4th grade) up, web-based or software, free or paid, not great for 3D printing -
      • 3D Model Warehouse contains historical and geographically relevant items & locations like the Globe Theater
      • Students can make historically or geographically relevant locations or architecture like medieval castles
      • Everything to scale
    • AutoDesk Fusion 360 - simpler than Inventor, hybrid web-based/software, middle school and up, free with school email addresses -
    • Use 3D models in simulations, like rockets in simulators
  • Question #2: How can students represent content-related locations?
  • Content from the Duct Taper Community
