|Original Bookmark with rafting.|
Background: Students were mentored in their use of Tinkercad, the students doing the tutoring were Y6/7 students from another room at the School who had experience in 3D Design and 3D Printing. This task has been completed with previous prints on this site on two previous occassions.
Level of Difficulty: Low: Students were producing work for the first time using the default setting and were able to produce this work with minimal assistance.

Timeframe: The Cahill Print was 45 minutes (8mm nozzle) and the Taylah Print two hours.
Process: The students were shown the process of design and creation with Tinkercad and given a brief of a bookmark. Otherwise they were able to work to create original designs of their choice. They were able to share ideas hence the similarities between designs.
What would we do differently:
Nothing. In this case the prints were impressive for first designs and the students were thrilled with the results - the practicality of the designs meant that they didn't perfectly fit the purpose as they were a little buky, and would have benefitted from having a clip or an insert to allow the bookmark to fully serve its purpose.
