The lesson is about designing and printing 3D columns in classical order. The main goal is to understand the basic parts of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns and the differences between them.
The students will be able to:
– Design columns in classical order
– Identify the main parts of Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns
– Know the basic differences between the styles of columns
– Use a model to explain the main parts of columns
– Use 3D printing file
– Learn 3D printing techniques
– Create and print 3D columns
Preparation is about the guided lesson in the classroom. Development of theoretical exercises to be implemented during the classroom lesson in order to make the lesson as interactive as possible.
- Introducing the topic and the objective (main differences between the columns in classical order),
- Explain the basics of the 3D programme usage,
- Guided designing of the 3D sculptures from pictures,
- Explaining how to save the file and how to export it into a suitable format (to get specification from the technical partner),
- Explaining the basics about the 3D printing,
- Show how to obtain the code for printing
- Explain how to prepare the 3D printer for new works.
- Design Doric, Ionic and Corinthian column,
- Saving and exporting it into a suitable format,
- Select the suitable setting for printing the columns (getting specification from the technical partner),
- Trying the design and participate in the exercise given by the teachers.
