3D Printing object design and printing

The goal of this project is to teach students some of the basic functions in Fusion 360 and Sketchup which can then be used to create a design that will be 3D printed.  The project will also include basics of 3D printers and how they function.  This is an entry level project so no prior knowledge of 3D modeling or 3D printing is required.
