Here Come Our 3D Stanley Visitors!

The second graders have partnered with another school (in a mystery location that we are trying to figure out from clues they have given us) to exchange 3D Stanleys! We have sent them the files for six 3D Stanleys for them to print. On Monday we started using our Dremel 3D40 printer to print the six files that they have sent to us!

The students have been enjoying watching the files print. We have been comparing the differences in how they were designed. Ours were created with the Morphi app and theirs were made using Maker’s Empire.

The 3D Stanley visitors will be joining the 2nd grade classes this week. Check out our Adventures of the 3D Stanleys blog to see what is happening in our classes as they visit!

UPDATE: Check out these pictures from Woodsdale Elementary as our 3D Stanley Crazy Characters visit their school!

The talking 3D snowflake videos have arrived!! The third graders did an amazing job creating and animating their stories telling about “The Secret Life of Snowflakes!” Here are a few examples:

Third Graders: Today leave a comment with 2 or 3 sentences telling:

  • what you LIKED about this project
  • what you LEARNED from this project
  • something you would try to IMPROVE next time you do 3D design or animation

Our 3D snowflakes were designed using the Morphi app on our iPads and printed using our Dremel 3D printers. More information on how we created the snowflakes in this blog post.

The animations were created using the free Chatterpix Kids app!
