3D printed bookmarks

Design, create and print your own custom 3D bookmark in this 3-hour workshop.

Produced by the City of Sydney

Darling Square Library opens on Monday 28 October.

Make your mark with a personalised 3D-printed bookmark in this hands-on 3-hour workshop. Guided by expert facilitator Heike Roberts, you’ll explore the basics of 3D design using computer-aided design (CAD) software. Learn the fundamentals of preparing files for the 3D printer, then sit back and watch your unique design become a real bookmark.

What you’ll learn

  • How to create and manipulate a unique design with Autodesk Tinkercad. Tinkercad is a CAD app for 3D design, electronics and coding
  • CAD drafting and 3D printing skills
  • How a 3D printer works, including the different components and possibilities of what can be printed.

What you’ll make

  • Your very own personalised 3D-printed bookmark. Your design will be printed after the workshop and we’ll let you know when it’s ready to collect (please allow up to 2 weeks)
