|Above: Design shown from above|
Time frame: Four hours for the base of the design (this also included the claws that can be seen in the photograph). The feet were printed in forty five minutes and the blocks that were used to mount them to the base took forty five minutes.
Size: The main base is 120mm by 60mm. It had a width of 20mm. The feet are shown to scale.
What we would do differently: The project was more of an attempt for a student to try his hand at 3D Printing for the first time that produce a completely coherent print. The student was very positive about the experience and enjoyed the final product. He thought that the chicken legs were unique. The base with his name raised into it was basic and could have had the students name with a capital letter. There was no need for the hole in the base of the design, this was created to hang the design from the wall.
Next steps for the student: This student has taken his first steps with 3D Printing and has made considerable steps and plans already with more complex projects.
