Are you ready to see some designs and 3D models from our primary school pilot classes? These young students did not have to learn CAD style software to design in 3D – they created the following designs using the Makers Empire app on their school iPads during just one class! They then printed their designs using a 3D printer.

Here’s the design on the Makers Empire app:
