Create3D™ Announces a TechCamp for Kids to Learn and Practice 3D Printing & Design

Four-Day, Hands-On Workshop in St. Petersburg Will Teach Kids the Basics of These Exciting New Technologies

(PRWEB) July 28, 2015

Create3D, A St. Petersburg company, founded by Mark Guthrie — a veteran of the 3D mechanical Computer Aided Design (CAD) industry, is excited to announce a 3D Printing & Design workshop for middle and high school students. This TechCamp is limited to 12 students so that individual attention can be given to all. “Creators”, as Create3D refers to the students, will learn about 3D printing and how it is changing the way companies design products. Equally important, students will learn how to create their own designs using a simple and free CAD program called TinkerCAD™.

“3D printing can be likened to the industrial revolution,” said Mark Guthrie. “This technology will fundamentally change the way things are created. And I say things because it spans art, products and things created just for fun.Industry is rapidly adopting this technology – not only for product conceptualizing but also, in some cases. for production.”

In this TechCamp, Creators will make several projects and will be able to choose among these or can bring their own ideas:

  • Art
  • Bracelet
  • Name plate
  • Picture frame
  • Phone case

The art project is particularly exciting. Creators will draw a design on paper, which will be transferred into TinkerCAD where it can be modified and then printed. Truly a “think it…make it” project.

Create3D is an authorized MakerBot® reseller. MakerBot has sold over 80,000 printers, probably more than any other company by far. MakerBot prints can be in either ABS or PLA plastic.

“We partnered with MakerBot for two reasons. First, their technology is solid and affordable. They also offer a service program called MakerCare™ that is head and shoulders above any I have see from other 3D printer companies. Perhaps more important than the technology, however, is the ecosystem they have created. Visit http://www.Thingiverse.com and you will have an idea of what they are doing. MakerBot’s Thingiverse™ is a sharing platform…you will be astonished as what you will find there,” Guthrie explained.

Thingiverse is deeply integrated into MakerBot’s 5th Generation printers. For instance, it allows users to browse Thingiverse on a phone, then launch and monitor the print from the phone.

“The confluence of technology makes this a very exciting time. Design tools are becoming easier to use and many are free; 3D printing enables anyone to create. At Create3D, we have a vision of introducing young people to the power of creation. We want kids to be able to imagine something and then see it materialize in front of their eyes!” concluded Guthrie.

The 4-day, 3-hour per day TechCamp is $190 and includes all of the 3D printing. The next camp will begin August 3rd – additional sessions are being scheduled for the fall.
