Designing 3D Characters with Morphi

IMG_4806

Here come our crazy 3D Stanley characters!

On Monday, the 2nd graders had their first experience with 3D design for our 3D printer. We used the Morphi Edu app to create our characters.

After drawing and coloring in our characters, students clicked the 3D button which magically converted the drawings into a 3D shape. The files were emailed to Miss Bosch who prepared them and sent them to the 3D printer.

Now our Dremel 3D printers are busy printing the characters out in white filament! (Later we will be coloring in the characters with Sharpie markers.)

Students are also writing stories to go along with our characters. We will be turning our characters and stories into an eBook!

We also are going to be exchanging 3D Stanleys with another school! More details to come when we start our exchange!
