Background: A student at another New Zealand school had designed a logo for the 'International Friendship Day' project. The school did not have resourcing for 3D Printing so we took the original student design and gave a brief to two of our students to create a 3D version of the design which we then subsequently printed and sent to the student who had designed the original.
Task: As the original design was created in Google Draw it was felt that this should translate well to Tinkercad and some of the shapes that were available from the main screen would be able to reproduce the original design.

Issues: None - an older filament was used and the machine is in need of a service, there has been a minor issue with some of the filament on the raised surfaces but this is minor and not related to the design of the print.
Size: 20cm by 15cm with a depth of 1cm.
Timeframe: Eighteen hours.
Process: The original in this case was designed by a student in Google Draw. The teacher was emailed the original design which was then copied and printed off so the students had the original to work with, as with most every other design on this site they used Tinkercad (beta) to complete the project which was then converted to Cura for Ultimaker 2 3D Printing.
Reflection: Students were able to mimic the design and it was a way to allow them to refine some of their skills. Producing something for another school added to the novelty value of the project.
