Training of primary-school children for 3d-modeling

The authors draw attention to the rapid development of information technology 3D-modeling and prototyping, the need to prepare people's livelihood in the new environment. The article actualizes the problem of training students to the new realities of the world system of commodity production based on 3D-modeling and 3D-printing in school. The authors propose to start primary school and use this program TinkerCAD. This article analyzes the possibilities of the program and its features and benefits of the use in teaching in elementary school. It is noted that the program is accessible and intuitive interface, supports essential operations with objects, you can easily change the exposure of objects, rotate and move them in any direction. The article presents the main objectives of the course 3D-modeling for the elementary school and the principles of training.
