Every child goes through woodworking classes in primary education. How can new technologies such as 3D printing or CNC-machining be included in the teaching, future proofing the children of tomorrow. TAD is a tangible modelling tool, which creates 1:1 3D files, in th emaximum format of 120*100*35mm, ready for either milling or printing on the go. By physically manipulating, the pins, form can be explored, duplicated or modified, and then fabricated. TAD is the result of an explorative process, where the goal was to create a way for children in primary education to use and develop their skills in digital manufacturing.
