My 3D Boat.

I made My toy using Sketchup, a 3D designing program used for 3D Objects but mini. Its special because we need it to plan and make stuff. We use it for learning and creating , mostly for inquiry after lunch. Its good we have a 3D printer at our school, because people can learn drawing skills and people who are skilled, teach the unpro people. We use it by using Icons on the top bar. There are varieties of things you can make, and do.Screen Shot 2014-03-05 at 10.53.19 am.pngThis is my toy that I made. As my teacher gave our class a Task by making a toy for the kids they can use during free time or rainy days. I made a boat with an Engine, Steering wheel and a Gage. I Used Sketchup, and Used colors from my Colour bar. I curved under the boat with the curve tool, and brought the engine from the 3D warehouse.

    I really enjoyed reading your post about the boat. We have a three d printer at our school too. I really enjoyed reading about the purpose of the boat and what a great idea that was. I also think that it was great that you used the 3d warehouse to get the model of the motor. We haven't been using SketchUp for our 3d designs at the moment, we've been still testing the printer so it is working properly but I have to say that I think your idea is great and I like the lay out and the way you've presented it.
