Paper Abstract

The paper will present the MAKEITREAL Technical Reference Guide, an open educational resource (OER) which provides technical information on Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D printing for STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). The reference guide presents in an easy to grasp way all the technical issues and the practicalities that should be considered by the teachers regarding the digital fabrication tools, 3D modelling, 3D printing technologies in the classroom. The guide elaborates on key technical decisions at a high level helping teachers overcome any obstacles or problems regarding technical aspects. The MAKEITREAL Technical Reference Guide offers an insight into CAD technologies, and current software developments and offers a comprehensive workflow from design to production.
