What in the world is Draftopolils? 

Draftopolis is the name of a Drafting + 3D Design project which will utilize several components of CAD/Drafting.  It also includes model-making skills and use of our incredible 3D printer.  Students from all our attending schools will be involved.

The project began with brainstorming to come to a consensus of what the "ideal town" is and what the vital components are for a good quality of life.  Students determined arrangement of spaces and uses for those space.  They designed a workable layout to incorporate the needs of commerce, services, residence, education, recreation and worship.

Students worked in teams to develop the design to create Draftopolis using 2D and 3D drafting programs.  Many of the buildings and objects were done using the model-making process while others employed 3D printing.

The overwhelming consensus of the students was that this project was both challenging and enjoy.  "This was a really good exercise to begin our school year," said Mr. Kelley. 

We look forward to seeing what they come up with next.
