Kids can learn CAD for 3D printing, but teaching it doesn’t have to be a hassle. David Seto and Michael Welch wrote a set of books to make teaching and learning the subject easier. They based it on their own experiences with 3D printing, learning it as beginners, coming from finance and mobile games industries, and then teaching CAD for 3D printing in after-school programs in Hong Kong and the USA. They talk about their book, The 3D Printing Cookbook, and share practical tips for making 3D printing work for young kids.
