F1 R-type

This resource from Boxford describes the manufacturing of an R-type car for the F1 in Schools competition. It includes exemplar CAD files for the balsa block from which the car is made and a variety of jigs. The material constraints for the design are described. Detailed step-by-step instructions, with supporting...

F1 D-type

This resource from Boxford describes the manufacturing of a D-type (Bloodhound challenge) car for the F1 in Schools competition. It includes exemplar CAD files for the balsa block from which the car is made and a variety of jigs. Practical considerations for manufacturing, such as the need to attach the balsa to...

Activity 4: In the Loop

This design-and-make project, from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, provides hands on experience of working with materials, using CAD/CAM for design, and an opportunity for students to manufacture interesting products while addressing many circular economy concepts. The activity explores the use of materials, the...

Activity 1: The Circular Economy in the Built Environment

This activity, from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, concentrates on the design of buildings, their use and eco- effectiveness. Students will explore how, through applying circular economy principles, new buildings can be created that have a positive impact – buildings that do good rather than less harm. The...

3D Printing, a new and emerging technology

This lesson resource provides teacher notes for delivering a lesson that places 3D Printing as a new and emerging technology. It looks at how 3D printers work and provides a student assessment.

How is 3D Printing used in society?

This lesson teaches students different uses of 3D printing and highlights the three main parts to the 3D printing process (I.e. design, slice, print).

An introduction to 3D printing

This package of resources by Learnbylayers provides a comprehensive introduction to 3D printing, where it is used in the wider world and why it is used to manufacture certain products. Students design an object, slice and print it and learn about the basics of 3D printing. The materials can be taught in class or...

Boat

This resource from Boxford describes the design and manufacture of a vacuum-forming mould that can be used to make a toy yacht. The resource includes a copy of an exemplar stereolithography file that can be used to manufacture the mould on a rapid prototyping machine. Several images of the CAD models, the use of a...

Printing in Three Dimensions

This Catalyst article looks at 3D printing, a new technology which is rapidly finding applications. Although probably too slow for mass production it is useful for producing prototypes and tailor-made items. In a 3D printer, layers of polymer beads are printed one on top of the other. Heat melts the polymer beads...
