This half term children will be looking at 3D design, first using greyscale images to create their own Roman coins and then moving on to Tinkercad, a 3d CAD program to design their own items.
We are very lucky to have 2 Ultimaker 3D printers in school which we can use to print our own designs using cura software.
We researched some of the 3D designs already out there on the webpage Thingyverse.
Here’s the Roman Colosseum design we found and printed for each class!
After designing coins, we looked at creating our own medals for Sports Day. From the designs, we will be choosing a winner to print for all the winners to receive on Sports Day!
We also used green screen technology to turn ourselves into Romans and bring them into the playground!
