3D Design: Elementary

What is 3D Design?

3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object with specialized software. The product of 3D modeling is called a 3D model. Your models can be displayed as a two-dimensional image on your computer screen or you can physically re-create your model using 3D printing devices.

Geometric primitives are shapes such as cubes, spheres, cylinders, blocks, and cones. To create your 3D model you need to use software that can combine geometric primitives.

Exercise: Students will look at objects, and break them down into basic components (geometric primitives). They should draw the objects on paper using only geometric primitives to recreate the objects.
