So for those of you that actually read the blog (probably just me as I type) the Friends of the Library are buying us a 3d printer! We have been wanting one for quite a while, but you have to do lots of research in order to get one. When you're going to be having a lot of awesome people using it, you want it to be good! ... and I am positive we are going to have lots of awesome people using it!
Onto the really awesome stuff. So we want you guys to create pieces of art. Yes, you can copy other people's work, but we want you to bring out your artistic abilities!
So here it is! We need you to use an online software that is called Tinkercad.
How it works:
1. Place: Shapes are basic building blocks of Tinkercad. A shape can add or remove material. Import your own, or work with existing shapes.
2. Adjust: Move, rotate and adjust shapes freely in space. Use tools like the ruler to input exact dimensions.
3. Combine: Group together a set of shapes to create models as detailed as you want.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Now we need you to learn how to use it and create your own artistry. Its going to be awesome! I know it.
