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.

  • Detailed lesson plans
  • Learning objectives and outcomes
  • Statement of which of the Government Guidelines are covered in the unit
