Add some 3D printing fun to World Book Day with these book inspired 3D prints that have been shared on Thingiverse.
These also provide inspiration for some World Book Day themed 3D printing activities using some of the CREATE Education project and activity resources.
Share your own activities and ideas by tagging us in on twitter @CREATE_EDU_PROJ and you may get retweeted as part of our school share Friday.
1. Harry Potter Bookmark
This bookmark is quick to print and uses very little filament, it would make a great prize for the best costume or reader of the week.
Alternatively as a world book day activity, why not ask your students to design their own book themed bookmarks. Using the 2D to 3D printing process, no CAD skills are required. Step-by-step instructions can be found by downloading our bookmark project resource.
3. Cat in the Hat Pencil Topper
This is another 3D print that is quick to print and uses very little filament, these would also make a great prize perhaps for the best piece of writing or book review.
Alternatively as a world book day activity, why not ask your students to design their own pencil toppers in Tinkercad. Pencil shaped “holes” can be created using the cylinder and hexagon shapes, resized to the correct pencil dimensions.
4. Wonka Bar
This wonka bar 3D print makes a great prop for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory costumes.
This could lead to a classroom 3D modelling chocolate bars design activity – the CREATE Education chocolates project resources can be used for this. If combined with a Mayku Formbox, the project could be extended to create chocolate moulds and chocolate bars.
5. Tigger Cookie Cutter
This Winnie the Pooh inspired design can be used to create some World Book Day themed biscuits for the students.
Alternatively as a world book day activity, why not ask your students to design their own book themed biscuit cutters using the “Scribble Tool” in Tinkercad.
