Learn SOLIDWORKS and 3D Printing with GoEngineer 3D Design KId Camps


"I think this is an extremely unique experience that you guys are offering [SOLIDWORKS Kids Camp] and I really commend you for doing this!"

W. Grant

"My experience was great! My favorite part was probably making the pen. I love the colors! I chose them because they are the colors of my football teams!"

Kathryn , Age 13

"I liked designing our pens and playing around on SOLIDWORKS. I enjoyed my experience because it was fun, educational, and I didn't waste away the day on my iPad."

 Eli , Age 12

"Thank you for the great session at the Kids Camp. [My daughter] had so much fun while learning to design using SolidWorks – the best combination!"

Angie, Mom

"They had so much fun and could not stop talking about their experience. They are already asking me to sign them up for next summer, and to find out if there are more classes offered throughout the year!"


"I really enjoyed being there. I had lots of fun. Learning to use the software was my favorite part and making the pen was my second favorite thing of the day."

Rebecca, Age 12

"I applaud you for doing these kid camps. I am happy to see this being done. Great going."

R. Williams

"My favorite part was assembling the pen and putting it together on the computer."

Jack, Age 12

"They will finally understand what I do on a daily basis. Many thanks to GoEngineer for hosting this event; we need more young creative minds in the industry to improve innovation. Thanks Again!"

J. Knabenschuh

"I really enjoy GoEngineer’s services and think offering this to kids is a great idea! Both boys are very mature, easily teachable, and love to tinker!"

M. Bjork

"I had a great time. My favorite part was being able to free-model and model whatever we wanted. I learned many things and that makes me happy because I love to learn and I haven't learned much since school got out."

Katherine,  Age 13

"My favorite part was being able to express my artistic side through technology. I, [J.Foster] LOVED making 3D models."

J.Foster, 11yrs old


Lesson 1: Part Modeling

Learn the basic steps for modeling a part inside SolidWorks.  We will look at the User Interface as well as getting started creating a 2D sketch and turning that into a 3D model.

Lesson 2: Assemblies

Learn how to take multiple parts and put them together in an assembly with mates. Learn about how different mates can give you different assembly motion.

Lesson 3: Drawings

Learn how to document your design with different Front, Top and Right side drawing views as well as section and detail views. We may need to relay information about the part geometry so we can get the part manufactured in the future.

Lesson 4: Animations

We are going to learn how to create an animation of our assembly. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then being able to rotate around an assembly and show how it operates is priceless.

Lesson 5: Textures

We are going to learn about changing the colors and display of our model. If all of our parts are gray, then our assemblies are going to look boring. Learn about textures, and different display options for our models.

Lesson 6A: 3D Printing – GrabCAD

We have two different videos showing the procedures for either using GrabCAD Print or Insight to slice, create toolpaths and 3D print our models.

Lesson 6B:3D Printing – Insight

We have two different videos showing the procedures for either using GrabCAD Print or Insight to slice, create toolpaths and 3D print our models.
