3D Printing in a Tree
In this episode, I talk about 3D printing in extreme environments and take on 3D Printing in a Tree. ***Warning: Don’t try this at home!!!***
Students can take on the challenge of designing a model for the extreme environment of space by participating in Future Engineers Two for the Crew Challenge. Find out more at http://www.futureengineers.org/twoforthecrew.
Fun post and thanks for pointing out the Two For The Crew challenge! The challenge reminds me of a print I came across a couple years ago…this MakeDO mini-tool: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:974158
We use MakeDo in the classroom for quick prototyping and one of the downsides is constantly using two different tools to punch holes in cardboard and to screw in the screws. I am constantly setting down one of the tools and forget where I put it when I need to switch tasks. This 3D print is a wearable solution that combines the punch with the screwdriver, uses VERY little filament, and is a brilliant little solution. I think it’d be a great way to introduce the challenge you pointed us toward.
Thanks for sharing!
Entertaining post! I wonder where else you could print a model!
