This presentation examines projects that have used 3D printing and CAD exploration as tools to engage youth and local communities in conversations centered on culture, community, and place-making. Looking at a range of 3D printing projects conducted in various settings such as museums, libraries, and out on the street as pop-up events, what are the lessons learned? What are ways to address the issues of long print times and CAD software learning curves in such drop-in settings? We will discuss these issues, as well as ways to create inviting spaces for exploration and conversation through 3D printing and CAD tools. Come ready for a bit of play as we look at 3D print projects that invited the public to improve public spaces, share cultural food stories though artifacts, and honor special people through 3D print Dia de los Muertos calavera de azucar.
