Primary School 3D Printing Resources

3D Design and Printing at St Monica's Primary School, Flixton, Manchester

We have had a great time sharing our design knowledge with local primary school children and so we thought we would share our Primary School 3D Printing Resources as they may help other schools to engage children to bring their designs to life.  We used TinkerCAD for the 3D design and Flashforge Finder Printers.  Our blog shows lots of photos from the sessions!
