This UAB Libraries technology workshop will provide an introduction to modeling for 3D printing using the free browser-based design software TinkerCAD. TinkerCAD is easy-to-use design software that does not require any previous knowledge of modeling, programming, or 3D printing. Beginners and interested individuals with no previous experience in this area are highly encouraged to attend. These sessions are open to anyone with a valid Blazer ID and password, including students, faculty, and staff. The content of each session in this series will be the same. Participants are welcome to attend multiple sessions.
