Discover 3D printing and modeling creating your own labyrinth !
How to run a 3D modeling and
3D printing workshop for 8-12+
years old kids ?
Why ? How ? What ?
Allow kids to discover 3D modeling and printing,
Take kids through the experience of creating their first personal 3D model,
How to :
Explain what is 3D printing and how it works,
Make kids create simple objects which they are familiar with, and show them the
result of their work,
Show the printer (or videos of it), and introduce 3D modeling,
Create a 3D model of a labyrinth.
Note : modeling a labyrinth also make kids experience the creation of a game, and is
excellent for thinking. Experience it yourself !
Get started with a simple “3D Slash head” and
then move to the labyrinth
An example of a « 3D Slash head » that you will ask kids to
design and which will guide them into their first manipulations
Then let them 3D model their own labyrinth
Sequence steps in a progressive way in 1h30 min’
5 min’ – Present 3D printing and tell that we are going to build a personal game, a
5 min’ – Show the printer working, or a video of a printer (ex :
5 min’ – Introduce basic 3D Slash tools that kids will use to make their own « 3D
Slash head »,
15 min’ – Kids get started modeling their own « 3D Slash head »,
5 min’ – Build a simple labyrinth adding and removing cubes,
40 min‘ - free modeling. Depending on kid’s individual progression invite them to :
Improve their labyrinth with holes, different ways, kickers, …
15 min’ : Invite kids to present their game and have a look at what others did.
FAQ – Frequently asked questions
Who is this workshop for ?
This workshop have been designed and tested with 8-12 years old kids,
Is there any technical skills or knowledge required to attend this workshop ?
No particular knowledge nor level is required,
All the kids will succeed in making their own « head » and labyrinth,
Is it necessary to have a 3D printer to run this workshop ?
No. It is a plus to have one running during the workshop, it makes it easier to show the
link between the 3D model and the object. But you can also illustrate it easily showing
pre-printed objects and a video of a printer running,
Do you need a computer for each kid, or can they work in pairs ?
In both cases they will manage to design the two objects,
When on their own they are usually more efficient and tend to go further in the design,
Do kids have fun during the workshop ?
YES ! Kids are really interested into making their own games,
The most advanced ones will start creating incredible traps or storey in their labyrinth.

3D Slash head :
Important notice regarding 3D printing
3D printing takes time and material. For this reason make sure kids model on a
64x64x4mm layer (like in the demo files), so that their games do not take too
much time to print,
It takes approximately 1h to print such a labyrinth. Consequently you will have to
print a demonstration model BEFORE the workshop to show it to the kids,
You can simply open the previous files and click the icon “print in 3D”,
Then either download the .STL file to print it on your own 3D printer, or print it
online directly from our website clicking “print” at one of our partners.
