This is part of the series of 30 exercises developed during the 3D4KIDS program. One of the aims of this Erasmus+ program is to improve the knowledge of teachers regarding the 3d printing technology by developing some specific training materials. More info in the website: https://www.3d4kids.eu/
During this project, students have been using various techniques to cut, prepare, shape and join various materials. Students would have used various tools/machines to prepare the mild steel including use of the brazing hearth. Students would have used various hand/portable and fixed machinery to prepare the wood and plastic being used to construct the money box.
Ensure all students have their Magic Money Boxes complete – only having the handle to add to their products. Ensure all boxes have the 5.5 mm drilled in ready for the printed handle.
Step 1: Students to research different types of handle shapes – create a mood board from found images on the internet.
Step 2: Students sketch out the type of handle they would like to add to their individual products – add annotations and decide which design (shape) would look best on their products
Step 3: Student to draw on Tinkercad their chosen idea
Step 4: More able students might consider the texture of their handle and adapt their drawing.
Step 5: Students to export their final design to Flash Forge Finder
Step 6: Students scale their drawing to allow the handle to fit in the 5.5mm drilled hole within their product.
Step 7: Students to print their handle in their chosen colour to match/compliment their Magic Money Box
Step 8: Student to attach their handle and photograph their product.
Step 9. Students to complete the write up in their Production Logs on the processes they have just carried out.
