Ever followed a recipe? Our books take an easy approach guide teachers through the basics of 3D modeling for 3D printing using kid-friendly, publicly available software.
12 kid-friendly lessons build confidence with the tools, techniques, and software, and enable them to tackle personal projects by the end of the course!
We start from zero: what materials you need for modeling, for 3d printing, and for the classroom instruction, and the hows and why and tips and tricks that will come in handy.
Learned a lot about new shapes and how to use the computer to create objects that were then printed for real. I loved seeing what I made on the screen actually become something I could bring home. I didn’t know how to do any of this before starting the ECA so I learnt a lot. Mr. Seto was a great teacher with good information, tips and patience to help us create lots of cool and fun designs like astronauts, planes, cups and rockets.

Mr. Seto is a very good teacher who explains seemingly difficult problems about Fusion 360. He has also taught me to use the originally unwieldy Fusion 360, that, with his help, becomes easier than pie.

I have always been keen to learn things like 3D printing as I’ve genuinely been interested in different types of technology. I think overall the class itself was a real learning experience about how 3D printing works and it was a really fun experience being able to create something new every week and experiment with the different tools on the program. I think I learned a lot from the experience and it was just a really fun activity to do after school. Thank you for being such a good teacher and congratulations on the book. I hope it can be a good learning experience for others who see it.

David’s after school class has been one of the most popular in the school and is always over-subscribed. This is because of his ease of communication and excellent method in teaching 3D printing. By developing the tasks as the ingredients of a recipe, with a step-by- step guide to produce a model, he has made the concepts accessible to all in a manageable way.
Dedicated in outlook, David is committed to the success of every child. I can definitely recommend David to you as a reliable and committed practitioner who motivates and inspires interest greatly in 3D printing.
