To celebrate Valentine’s Day we created Love Tokens on the 3D Printer and learned how to braid yarn. Click here for the stl file. A single print run for nine hearts was only a few minutes. I taped the wool strands to the desks ahead of time. We took a look at part of this video that shows the braiding clearly. Students did a great job and enjoyed the challenge.
Other classes continued to celebrate learning at Vanier using QR Codes and our Mighty Girl Projects are starting to take shape. And, we made a quick video of our wall of What Do You Love?
Here’s a quick, basic step by step on how to use a Thingiverse or other 3D Print file websites with your Tinkerine 3D Printer. Check out Tinkerine U for more advanced tutorials and lesson plans. There are other ways of doing this but this one works for me.
