What did you make?
In my project I made a pair of heart shaped cuff links. I was inspired to make these after learning about 3D modeling, and I wanted to learn how to do something that very few people my age know what to do.
How did you make it?
I made these cuff links with a program called TinkerCad. I was taught how to use TinkerCad by following tutorials and playing with the program myself. The program is easy to master, and I had a complete knowledge of the program within 20 minutes.
Where did you make it?
I designed the cuff links on my computer at my house, however I do not currently have a 3D printer to test printing these cuff links out on.
What did you learn?
I learned how to use a 3D modeling program to manipulate common shapes into something else.
For the UP! Contest: I am 14 years old and I am not able to produce the $1200 for even a basic printer. By voting for me in the contest you will be helping by increasing my chance of winning. If I were to win a 3D printer, I would start my own business that designed and built decor for the modern world and I would also make my brother a pair of Army cuff links (He was just accepted to West Point Military Academy!). Thanks!
