Good "show off" prints to excite students?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! As the title suggests I'm looking for some examples I can print on my Ultimaker 2 or Go that demonstrate good design, interesting art, clever functionality or all of the above. I'm doing a demonstration for a middle / high school and I'm looking to get students excited about design, engineering, art and of course 3D printing.

One example I've already selected is a "dust shield" that has a print in place hinge which is really slick (sorry I'm mobile and don't have a link) and a prosthetic Raptor Reloaded hand. I'm especially keen on print in place gadget design because it's like a brain teaser.. "How did they do that?"

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi,

You can't go wrong with single prints that move such things as gears or gyro's.

We used this one at Makerfaire UK and is a short print and kids, teens and adults loved it because they don't get how it prints the mechanism.

NASA space wrench is always a good one for the same reason and it's printed in space.
