|Container and lid before rafting removed|
Background: All of our students have a significant showcase coming up. As part of this the students in the classroom next door are producing a range of products that are unique which they create which they would like to brand. 3D Printing allows them to engineer and design their own products (using Tinkercad) and then create them. The students in this case are nine and ten year old students.
|Two lids, reprint on the right|
Timefame: Ten hours for both the base and the lid in this case. The second reprint of the lid, when it was just produced on its own took two hours.
Size: Ten centimetres for the height of the container, 6cm across.
What we would do differently: Very little. The students concerned meet the brief that they had created and were excited with the results. It was a successful print, allowed for a degree of individualism and created a unique print for the student. The student had not had significant previous experience using Tinkercad but was able to confidently produce the print. (The teacher had to remove the rafting using pliers on this occassion).
