Makerbot 3d printed fox
Why would this project be desirable to users? Why did you select or create this design? Who would be possible customers?
I selected the fox design because it met the requirements of the project. It had a flat base, no open spaces, and was the correct size.
I think potential customers for my 3d printed fox could be stores that sell souvenirs such as zoos or parks. Customers who sell toys may be interested in my fox.
What obstacles or challenges did you face? How did you overcome those obstacles or challenges? If you were to complete this again, what would you do differently?
An obstacle was my partner being unable to print with me. I was able able to overcome this obstacle by finding a new partner to print with after school.
If I were to 3d print this design again the only thing I would change would be to change the color of the fox to a tan or desert color.
What were you proud of or what was your biggest accomplishment with this project? What was most interesting or intriguing about this project? What did you learn through the designing and fabricating processes?
I was most intrigued by actually watching the fox print before my eyes. I had fun looking through all the files trying to choose a design to print.
One thing I learned how to do was to import and export stl files to the Makerbot desktop program.
