3D Crazy Characters – Second Grade eBook

IMG_1274

I’m excited to share that our second graders’ eBook, “3D Crazy Characters”, is now available for online viewing. The book features 3D characters designed with the Morphi app. The 3D files were printed on our Dremel 3D40 and 3D20 Ideabuilder printers using white filament which were colored with Sharpie markers. We used the Book Creator app to combine the 3D characters, background illustrations, stories, and audio narrations into one eBook. The book also includes information and videos on how we created the characters and eBook.

“3D Crazy Characters” also is available for free download on over 50 iTunes stores all over the world! If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPad, or Mac computer you can download the book onto your device to keep for viewing anywhere and to save as a memory for the future!

Notes for Educators:  Our backgrounds were made in computer lab using KidPix software. We used the Book Creator app to photograph the 3D characters on the backgrounds. Each student made an audio recording of their story using Book Creator. We are currently helping to beta test a new feature in Book Creator which allows you to publish your books online. This feature is so easy – simply click a button for publication. I am very excited for teachers to have an opportunity to have a user friendly way to share their students’ work with an online audience.

Book Creator is currently available for $4.99 US for iOS. There is a lite version which will let you try out the app and create one book. It also is available for Android and Windows.

We have been excited to share our books with family and friends, but we are hoping that we can connect with even a wider “Authentic Audience” around the world.  We would love for other students and classes to download our book.  If you do, could you please leave us a comment so we can know who has been reading our books!

If you have a class that has created an eBook, we would love to do a book exchange with you! Please leave a comment with a link to the book file or contact Miss Bosch via email at kbosch@southfieldchristian.org or on Twitter at @karlyb.

Disclosure: As a part of the Dremel 3D Idea Builder Ambassadors program, our school is receiving the use of the 3D40 printer for one year.
