As part of her 3D Design class, Fiona Ross regularly provides her students with a wide variety of experiences in examining, designing, and constructing objects that have a visual purpose. During the fall and spring 2012 semesters, Ross added 3D modeling using Google’s SketchUp application to her list of required student competencies. The virtual objects were then printed using the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology’s MakerBot 3D printer.
