Additional Info

  • What you will learn:
    • Engineering:
    • - Designing and assembling the parts of the proposed solution.
    • - Learn about industrial design tools.
    • - Learn how to use them
    • - Being able to design real object for a specific purpose (Sevice learning)
    • Technology:
    • - 3D printing process.
    • - Learn about different manufacturing processes: additive manufacturing, machining, etc.
    • - How to improove your skills in 3d printing
  • Expected Time:

    From 5 to 10 hours

  • Materials & Recycled Materials:
    • - PLA for 3D printers “RECYCLED”
    • - Free software (CURA and ONSHAPE)
    • - Steel for the machines (if manufactured by electroerosion)
    • - Chess board “RECYCLED”
  • Guide:
    • For an autonomous use of the project:
    • - 1. Decide 6 different characters of Mario Bros for the chess game.
    • - 2. Using ONSHAPE, design each of the characters or objects chosen (all of them available in stl and step). The difficulty of the design is to design a single part that can be manufactured by EDM, i.e. all the elements of the part must be in contact with the core of the part. Furthermore, if any holes are to be made in the part, they must be through holes from one side to the other, so that they can be made on this machine.
    • - 3. Slice each design with Ultimaker Cura
    • - 4. Print each design and build the chess game
    • To manufacture each design by electroerosion: The two first steps will be the same, then you would need a teacher´s help tp manufacture it.
  • Further Steps:
    • This project can go further since it´s based in a service learning.
    • For example, next step could be "learning how to manufacture the chess game by electroerosion", or could think of making a bigger game, human scale game, so children could play in their playground.
    • Manufacturing processes would be very important for the new stage of the project
  • Software used in the project:
  • Difficulty level: Easy
  • Developed By: Politeknika Txorierri - ES
