3D Printed Art for Mathematics Competition

This series of prints was completed for a specific competition.   The local students have a regional competition that they can enter into.   The competition is Mathematically based and as part of Methanex Mathematics promotion, details of which you can find by clicking on the link here.

Traditionally the students in the competition have created 3D models using materials such as sticks, straws, blue tack etc to produce a model that was three dimensional.

This year the students from our school used Tinkercad to create three dimensional designs, and then printed them using the Ultimaker2.  The concepts a relatively new one for the competition, having visited the displays in the past 3D Printed objects are not the norm, so it will be interesting to see how this will be reflected in the judging.  The students themselves will complete the printing details for each of the objects shortly and we will post the details online.
