Capture, Create and 3D Print

Capture, Create and 3D-Print anything you want with simple tools that are available to you for free today! It is really pretty easy and everyone can have lots of fun with this.

This is our first 3D printed scanned model of Snowy the bunny rabbit:

Here, I will describe a mini-tutorial on how to Capture, Create and 3D Print anything you want. Using simple and FREE software tools available in the market today, you can now make a 3D model of pretty much anything you can photograph - pretty cool stuff!

I will illustrate this process using an iPhone. Alternatively, if you do not have an iOS device you can download the Autodesk 123D Catch software onto your computer, capture images using a camera and upload all your captured images onto the program.

Here is how you do it with your iPhone/iPad

Step 1: Download 123D Catch on your iPhone/iPad device
Step 2: Launch the app and create an account on 123D Catch
Step 3: Start a new capture by pressing the "+" button on the top right corner

Summer Camp at Bee Best Learning

The kids at Bee Best Learning Center had a full week of fun-filled experience in 3D printing and model creation using simple tools such as Blokify and TinkerCAD. Children from ages 8 to 12 were eager to learn how to create their own models and explore these new tools for 3D designs. One of the kids, 9 yr-old Arthur created his own dragon model from scratch using TinkerCAD. His older sister, created more sophisticated and polished models such as the sword. The younger children created simple castle models and other things using Blokify.

Here is a glimpse of the wonderful 3D creations they have made and pictures of the children showing off their models.

Wow! We were simply amazed by the creativity of these students.

SE3D Summer Camps is a great way to introduce young children to the concept of 3D printing and teaches them the tools to develop their creative skills.
