FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Is PowerPoint adequate to create a digital poster? Absolutely!
  • What CAD software is best for primary students to use to design a model of their product? Sketchup is free and easy to use (lot's of helpful videos on youtube) but there are lots of other CAD software programs online.
  • Does the model of the product need to be test printed on a 3D printer? You don't have to include a CAD model - but if possible, it would be a good idea to test it before sending.
