3D Design and Printing workshop

Date Multiple sessions available
Venue ANSTO Discovery Centre
New Illawarra Road, Lucas Heights, NSW 2234
8 - 13 years

In order to help slow and suppress the spread of COVID-19 ANSTO’s tours and school holiday workshop activities are now on hold.  We look forward to resuming these activities as soon as possible. If you would like to hear from us when the tours and workshops resume please leave your details.

In this workshop you'll be learning the basics of 3D design and printing by making your own custom name tags, 3D characters and other objects. We'll be using to design our digital creations, and all models designed on the day but not finished will be mailed out after the workshop to your address. 3D printers are fun but very slow so we'll also be using our 3D pens to hand-make fun designs limited only by your imagination!

All workshops are delivered by accredited educators with experience in science, engineering, programming and robotics.

Safety note: 3D printing with PLA filament can release small amounts of fumes. While we run this workshop in a well ventilated environment, as a precaution, we recommend anyone suffering from severe allergic asthma attend a different ANSTO school holiday workshop.

Please bring food, drinks and a hat for morning tea and lunch breaks. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of the workshop at the ANSTO Discovery Centre.
