The 3D Experience, or 3DX, is a certification program that teaches students and teachers the design and development process of learning how to create your own 3D technologies. Each week students will learn how to use their 3D Literacy® Maker Stations platform to create new and innovative 3D projects. 3DX Level 1 classes provide weekly exercises using a variety of 3D CAD design software, 3D printers and other machines to create physical parts for electrical/mechanical components that will be programmed to interact with the 3D environment. Successful completion of the class and rubric awards a 3D Literacy® Level 1 Certificate. 3DX Level 2 classes continue expanding from the level 1 course into 3D printed robotics and more advanced projects.



Weekly 3DX classes are held at Open Source Classroom’s Maker Space in DT Bloomington. Classes start the week of May 28th, 2018 and end the week of August 6th, 2018.  We have different age groups and time slots available.

All classes include the following for 3DX participants:

  1. 3DX Level 1 class (classes are 90min, once a week for 10 weeks)
  2. 3D Literacy® Maker Station with 3DX Arduino Level 1 Electronics kit
  3. 1kg Spool of PLA Filament for 3D printing, your choice of color
