This camp was great, I really liked how we were able to make our designs and actually print it out. I love the 3D printer, it is really cool. There's some that make it in color, make really tough and even ones made out of candy! I would really like to have a 3D printer in class. I like how we were able to work in a group and share our ideas. I like how we re-purposed things and how to make it better. I really enjoyed this class and how we had to create an item and how we built it. I learned how you can literally just draw it out on the computer and it comes to life and it isn't flat! I really hope people do this next year.
This item is a semi-circle. It has a place to hold your supplies. It also can also hold a picture and you can engrave something. This is almost a cylinder and has two flat ends. This also is hollow and long.
The only thing I would change to customize this is the picture and the engraving.
You can change the picture to a picture of you and engrave your name.
This is an iphone holder I is rectangular block with little things to adjust the angles. The angles are all different. One will make it leaning to the back, one is straight up and the other is leaning forward. The only things I would change is:
1) Make it a different color.
2) Engrave the name of a person.
This is a paperclip and it's almost an oval. It has an opening to put a paper through it. It says My Clip. It can also be used as a bookmark. This is blue with white words. It also has a design around the margin.
I would just change the color or the My Clip.
I did an elephant with TinkerCad and it was easier than Sketch Up. But when I did other figures, it was a little harder. Honestly I would choose Sketch Up over TinkerCad. It was easy and fast when I made the elephant, but when I wanted to make a simple ring, it was really hard. I didn't know how to take the middle piece out. Also I had trouble with making the body. Either they weren't touching each other. I like Sketch Up better.
Today I wanted to make a ring with the SketchUp. I had many difficulties with making it a solid. Thanks to the help of Ms. Kushner, and Tabby, I was able to make my ring. I'm now done and what I had to do was change my designs and and lines. The lines were used to create the walls and I made it hold the weight up. Here is my finish product.
This is a picture of two old paintbrushes that were flattened and had straps attached. Now they are skis for a doll.
We created the light flicker, remote holder and a phone case. I'm excited to present our inventions. I think we worked well as a group and we listened to each other. Maybe we should make the inventions stronger and smaller.
My name is Ariadna and I go to Chute Middle School. I'd like to make something that I can give to my sister, some sort of figure or doll. I like to use Scratch on the computer. I also like play games and going to websites. I like turtles and horses and dog and hippos.
