Welcome to ScholarBots

Schreiner University's 3D Design & Printing Club

Schreiner ScholarBots

Purpose

To teach, learn, share, and explore the elements of 3D design and the MakerBot 3D printer.

About ScholarBots

Students will gain understanding and hands-on experience with basic 3D modeling software and the MakerBot printer. Students will engage in discussions and collaborate on the design process, and various uses of the MakerBot printer.

Topics will range from technical instruction and workshops, to designing prints with purpose, to operating the machine. Students can participate in national and local design contests or themed workshops.

Students will share ideas and designs while offering feedback to one another in a welcoming environment. This group will help students with experience in design, communication, expression, and understanding.

ScholarBots is open to all currently enrolled Schreiner students from all academic areas of study.
