Let’s make it 3D!

It’s time to get into the best shape of our lives, and that’s the three-dimensional kind of course! So dry off from your adventures last week out at sea and get ready to visit a new dimension with us this week with Digital Making at Home…let’s make it 3D!

And remember that on Wednesday at 2.00pm BST / 9.00am EDT / 7.30pm IST, you can join Mr. C and a special guest for another live code-along session! When it’s time, head to rpf.io/home.

We’re creating in 3D this week!

This is the week to try your hand at 3D design, so you can start to create digital worlds or to 3D print fun objects to share with your family and friends. Imagine what your digital making skills can do in not just one or two, but THREE dimensions!

So what do you say, digital makers? Let’s start designing in 3D — our team is ready:

Monkey in a birthday hat!

You may have heard of  the ‘Cat in the Hat’, but what about a ‘monkey in a birthday hat’? In his video, Mark is going to show you how to make a 3D model of a monkey wearing a party hat! This video is based on our free ‘Party monkey’ project guide (available in 12 languages).

Who wants a 3D keyring?!

You’re a proud coder, so why not show it off with a ‘coder’ keyring! Get ready to 3D design with Mr. C and one of his sidekicks. This video is based on our free ‘Coder keyring’ project guide (available in 11 languages).

Make a 3D bug

This project is a throwback to April, when Mr C and Xavier made a 3D bug to celebrate Earth Day! If you didn’t make one then, you’ve got a second chance this week. This video is based on our free ‘3D bug’ project guide (available in 17 languages).

Want to do more 3D design?

Are you looking for more? How about making a cool 3D pendant that you could print on a 3D printer and wear as an accessory?

We’ve also got lots of other free project guides for 3D design using BlocksCAD, FreeCAD, and Blender software. Go take your pick!

Show us what 3D shape your projects take!

All of your projects we’ve seen so far have been out of this world, so we can’t wait to see what you make in a new dimension! Don’t forget to share what you create with us and also let us know if you have any feedback for what you want to see in Digital Making at Home!
