3D Printing @Howbridge

Today, Fynn and I went to the Computer Suite with Mr Eaves, to design and create a model on the brand new 3D printer. I made a narwhal, which is a medium-sized toothed whale, that has a large “tusk” from a protruding canine tooth. Fynn made an Excalibur in the Stone.

Our designs were made on Tinkercad, an App which allows you to design models in 3D. We then linked the computer to the 3D printer and our designs were born!

We hope you enjoy the result.
