Nick P. uses the open source 3D modeling program Blender to engineer a solution to a problem. He creates scaffolding—the orange vertical boxes—to allow the 3D printer a surface to print on. If not for these supports, the plastic layers above the holes would drip down.Nick P. uses the open source 3D modeling program Blender to engineer a solution to a problem.

Students in the Computer Science and Engineering Club model their keychains using the software programs FreeCAD and Blender. After a successful model, they then printed their models out on the 3D printer. An instructional tutorial was put on the school's Learning Management System called Canvas for the students to refer to at any time allowing students to continue to learn skills outside of school.Students in the Computer Science and Engineering Club model their keychains using the software programs FreeCAD and Blender.
