As a class we were challenged to create a device using only open source 3D modeling software that if printed in a third world country would be helpful, for my project I chose to make a can opener

Materials and methods

First I modeled up each component using FreeCAD and then converted them to STLs. As they were printing out using PLA filament, I acquired a few smaller components from a local hardware store. I purchased two small 20mm gears, one 4M bolt (and nut), one 6M bolt (and nut), a 20mm wheel with fine gear edge, a small circular blade, and nine washers of various sizes.
