3D PRINTING INCURSION – SCANNING AND DIGITAL SCULPTING
A selected group of year 8 and 10 Visual Arts Collective students participated in an 3D printing incursion, which focused on Scanning and Digital Sculpting.
The incursion was run by the Modfab team, Ben and Heike, who have assisted the school in the development of their 3D printing program in Visual Arts.
This exciting new technology is at the forefront of cutting edge educational techniques and is beginning to become a popular tool for many educators in many disciplines.
The end goal will be to create a fantastical totem pole, inspired by real-life scans of the student’s faces. This was a fabulous education opportunity and the Visual Arts department looks forward to implementing new educational programs in the near future featuring the 3D printer.
