Turn up the volume on your very own FM radio in this 3D design and electronics workshop.

You’ll assemble an FM radio circuit and research, design, 3D print and laser-cut a bespoke outer case. You’ll use sketches and computer-aided design tools to help you create your case, and you can customise it whichever way you please. The only limitation is your imagination.

You’ll need to attend every session to complete the course and your radio.

What you’ll learn

  • Basic skills in computer-aided design (CAD), 3D printing, laser cutting and electronics

  • Designing products using Autodesk Fusion and exporting them to a 3D printer

  • Soldering and assembling electronic products

What you’ll get to take home

Your very own FM radio, personalised with your bespoke outer-case design.
