Using Augmented Reality to visualise 2D sketches as 3D models

Planning maker projects, to extend learning opportunities with design for digital fabrication, has taken us back to tablets with new applications.

We’ve been looking to develop more ideas to support student projects over time, and to highlight maker education as another chance to combine digital literacy with physical computing across the curriculum.

Schools using 3D printers to design, prototype and showcase digital fabrication projects have linked previous projects into planning phases.

Just a couple of examples below, relating to environmental themed projects through physical computing (with Raspberry Pi) and now using the Quiver app to add support to visualise 2D sketches as 3D models.

And so to 3D:

Of course the recent Amy Johnson Festival in Hull has led to more inspiration and a little Summer tinkering, too.

More to follow 🙂
