On Tuesday 13th June some people from Ultimaker and CREATE Education in Manchester came to teach us about 3D printers. As well as making our own things we saw some other creations: a castle; a shark; a boat; and even an artificial hand.
All of us really enjoyed having the people come in and help us. They even taught us how to use a new software called Beetle Blocks, which we used to made mandalas. It was quite tricky to get all the right coding, but after a bit of time all of us achieved a beautiful mandala each one was one of a kind. Some people made extraordinary designs.
Here are some quotes about the day:
- I enjoyed the fun activities which tested our knowledge of the sites for 3 dimensional printing and the easy way how they taught us how to use the different programmes.
- I am more confident with the basic skills of 3 dimensional printing and have learnt how to upload multiple objects into one project.
- We have learnt to print and make things on Beetle Blocks.
- We enjoyed learning about 3D printers and how they work.
Even the teachers learnt something; Miss Shelmerdine found out how to print more than one thing at a time. So all in all we had a very good day.
