Learning Challenge: To use the 3D Printers in conjunction with the EVO Robotics as part of the school technology program. The task was for the students to design a Golf Flag as a target with the idea that the robot would be able to launch a golf ball into it.
Background: Auroa Primary School hosts its own technology program and in an attempt to integrate the 3D Printers in use in another area of the classroom program it was combined with a task involving robotics. Students have technology every Friday from 9am until 2pm for half of the School year. They have five week blocks at each of the four key areas (Sewing, Food Technology, Robotics and Woodwork). Last year the 3D Printing Technology was a stand alone program that resulted in the 3D Printed Speakers.
Task: Students had to create (using Tinkercad) a 3D Design for a Golf Flag/hole that was suitable for a golf ball to be rolled into.
Level of Difficulty: Low - this design was the particular students first ever using Tinkercad and was completely independently with another student providing limited assistance.
Timeframe: 12 hour print
Size: 15cm wide, depth of 15cm and a height of 20cm
Process: Template designed in Tinkercad. Students then edited design (with another students assistance. Converted to Cura and printed on the Schools Ultimaker 2 3D Printer.
