3D Printed Emojis at MadFabLab

Want to make your own IRL (in real life) Emoji?

On this two hour workshop you’ll learn the basic principles of 3D modelling using free online software Tinkercad. Using the cube tool, you’ll build a 3D model of your favourite emoji – or create your own! You’ll then export your file to be printed using Ultimaker 3 software – Cura. The MadFabLab team will then print these for you to collect.

This course is suitable for all abilities, and beginners with no previous experience are welcome.
