2019 June Exibition at West Windsor Library

From June 1 till June 30 we have an exhibition of our students works at Mercer County Library: West Windsor Branch

From November 2018 till February 2019 3D STEPS (3dsteps.org) has been offering give back to community free 3d printing classes at the West Windsor Public Library. All the models were made during one-hour class by the students of different age group kids and adults from 6 to 70+.

Guys, we enjoyed working with you – all of you are so creative people, and now we are glad to present some of those creations to the world!

This small exhibition presents models created by our talented students.

Aahana A.   Grade 5 Village School
Anika K.       Grade 3 Dutch Neck School
Jayant V.     Grade 7 Community School
Krisha P.      Grade 5 Village School
Mahika K.    Grade 5 Village School
Rishi S.         Grade 5 Community School

Some of the models are simply fun art projects like snowman, cups, soap holders, etc. Other are more complex.

Our students learn how to create articulated designs and models with moving parts by using knowledge of computers, mathematics, geometry, and physics.

Those models have to be designed accurately with high precision. Articulated designs of cars with moving wheels, butterfly or door hinge were designed to be printed as a single piece (there was no assembly involved).

Knowledge of 3D modeling and 3D printing allows us to create models of a different complexity which we can use both in everyday life (the toothbrush holder, cups, toys, etc.) or when creating the most complex engineering systems. (for example, the robotic arm) 

“Thor” robotic arm is a complex engineering system with main structural and mechanical parts printed on a 3d printer.  Our students are working on the project of building Thor robot arm and designing multifunctional tools for the robot. The Robot arm will be programmed by the students to operate with each tool.

All the models were printed on PIPER 3d printers (piper3dprinters.com)
