Fablab ModelMaker software is used to render 3D shapes. The output initially shows the net of the shapes which can be printed on paper and cut out using a paper cutting machine (also available for loan). Each shape created includes additional information such as description, formulas (volume, surface area), parameters, and more for reference. These reference metrics allow students to learn more about each shape, as well as assess their understanding of geometric shapes, volumes, variables and ratios.
Note: For Macintosh users, the last version of macOS that is compatible with FabLab is 10.4, Mojave. If you require alternate computers to run FabLab, just let us know!
