The posts in this series followed a first set of prints, detailed below and inspired by the 'Christmas Tree' Print from two days ago. Since then we have expanded the project to target producing thirty individual prints (for the students in our classroom) and a further thirty prints for a buddy, another student from elsewhere in the classroom.
This print will be reconfigured to remove the cluster of names and lettering on the base of the design.
Left: An original Christmas Tree design, featuring the initials of the student that designed it with their initials featuring prominently in the design. An attempt was made to have a star at the top of the tree, this was not successful as removal of the rafting also resulted in teh removal of the star. The student was a nine year old making their first attempt at 3D Printing. The tree was 80mm high and 60mm acoss at the base. The design was only 4mm thick which was reflected in the print time of just under two hours.
This is a good basic design for junior students or students who are attempt to print for the first time.
This design will require reworking relative to the size of the design and the size of the lettering and would be described as medium difficulty.
