FABLAB Manorhamilton was started in late 2014 by a collective of Designers, Engineers and Makers.

This project is aimed at young people with an interest in creating 3D Lego structures with the help of expert facilitators from Fab Lab Manorhamilton. The workshop will show how to do basic 3D modelling in Tinkercad and then how to use the Bricks function in Tinkercad to convert that to a Digital Lego model.

We will provide you with a step by step guide to building that Digital Lego model in the real world using the Lego bricks that you have at home. Tinkercad is a free online 3D Modelling application that runs in a web browser and can be used on Mac, Windows, iPads or Android Tablets.

No previous experience of 3D Modelling is necessary as we will take you through the basics of how to create shapes and models in Tinkercad and show some ‘secret’ Tinker powers that will super charge your Lego building.

This workshop also features a competition:

Competitions and Prizes

We will have a number of competitions throughout the day. Each competition will have three age categories:
