High School

If you attend a technical high school, you may be able to take classes in manufacturing, 3-D modeling, prototyping, and engineering. Speech and English classes will help you to build your communication skills, and business and accounting courses will be useful if you decide to start your own company. Other useful classes include chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Some high schools offer programs in 3-D printing as part of science or shop classes, or through after-school clubs.
