Why should children learn 3D?

3D modelling, or creating 3D objects digitally, is a skill used in a range of industries.

From media industries like film, video, and gaming, to engineering and industrial design, and science and medical applications, the skill of designing and creating in 3D opens up a world of opportunities.

3D Printing is a method of creating physical objects from digital 3D models.

This emerging technology lets people create anything from customized prosthetics to quickly-produced car parts, and is quickly becoming an essential part of the industrial and product design fields.

Beyond industry: hobbies that help people express their creativity

Hobbyists use these skills to build all kinds of creative objects, including sculpture and figurines, and all kinds of useful accessories for their daily lives.
