Summary - Out now

This unit examines the impact and technical processes of 3D printing in society and in the classroom before building CAD skills to design 3D components. A practical problem-solving approach to creating connecting parts for a structure is encouraged using techniques demonstrated throughout the unit. Finally, pupils are encouraged to critically review and analyse their successes or failures to inform future design decisions.

What people say...

Fantastic book – concise, informative and great use of images for explaining methods and processes.

Mr Jon Phillips. Design and Technology Teacher, Hereford Cathedral School

Excellent resources and value for money. A lifesaver for me and also for my new member of staff who is a non-specialist.

Mr Phil Andrews. Head of Design and Technology, St Joseph's Catholic High School
