Learning Challenge: Utilizing the 3D Printer to produce a kitset car that would work to complement the motor part of the kitset (see below). The parts needed to ensure that the motor would work.
Level of Difficulty: As a prototype the teacher wanted to complete the task first. In addition to the regular parts of the car additional parts to house the additional components and features needed to be made and constructed. This has been intended as a practise run before the students complete the task.
Issues: The axel space around the wheels was not clear enough which led to a restriction in the movement. In future print runs this area of the car would need to be addressed to allow it to move freely.
|The New Zealand kitset version|
Size: Twenty five centimetres in length and fifteen centimetres across.
Moving Forward: The intention with this task is for the students to complete the task individually and produce their own version of this project.
