The guillotine

We had a 3D-printing project at school. A friend and I decided to make a guillotine for history. We had lots of fun and the end result is more awesome than we could've imagined.

We had a school project to create a 3D-design for a school subject. We decided to make something for history. The idea to make a guillotine came from the French Revolution. We designed the guillotine in different parts. There were some difficulties in the process of the making, but we solved them. We are very happy with the result, because it was the first time we worked with SketchUp, Cura and a 3D-printer.

Difficulties: the 'nek ding 2x' is smaller than the knife, but due to lack of time we solved it by polishing the knife. Otherwise we would've made a new design for the knife.
We also had some problems with 'guillotine zij paal 03 2x printen.stl'. If you take a look at the design and the image you can see there is a difference. It didn't matter for us, because the guillotine was perfectly capable to keep his balans with the small prisms.

Materials and methods

We used SketchUp to make this design and Cura to print it. You can download them for free. You also need a computer and a 3D-printer. We used the Ultimaker 2 for this project.
