|Above: Box with rafting still attatched|
Background: Student was responsible for the Mothers Day Box in this series of prints, featured in detail on this blog. He has mastered the drop down lid for 3D Printed boxes. He is a student who is nearly ten years old. He is using 3D Printers and projects for the first time in class this year.
|The box lid and handle|
Size: 19cm long, 8cm wide and a height of 8cm. The lid was slightlty smaller with an internal lip the required the removal of rafting.
Timeframe: The main box was a twelve hour print, the lid was six hours. 8mm nozzle as detailed previously.
What would we do differently: The student concerned has previously mastered sinking lettering into the base of the box or object that he has created to personalise them. In this instance he choose not to do this however it would have been a simple matter to include this.
Feedback from the student: The student who created this project was asked to talk about it and show the object which is the video that follows. (This video was informally shot by students in front of the green screen in our hall, this screen is a painted wall 8m across, 7m high and a depth of 2m from the green carpet tiles that come out from the wall)
