This lesson plan is split into 2 x 1 hour sessions. Students will be introduced to the 3D scan to 3D print process by creating a range of classroom objects from clay. The creations will then be turned into digital models using a 3D scanner before being 3D printed!
The lesson can be incorporated into the study of design technology, art and design and ICT. The material can be adapted for ages 8-15. The curriculum is aligned to NGSS, CCSS and UK National Curriculum standards. A comprehensive list of standards met is included in the lesson platform.
In this project students will:
develop contextual knowledge of 3D scanning
improve their mastery of art and design skills using a range of materials
develop hands-on 3D scanning skills
use 3D printing software to edit and prepare files
develop an understanding of 3D printers and how they operate
go through the product design process, from concept to completion
