3D Printing Pyramids
As a part of my Egyptian Empire unit students learn how to use TinkerCad.com and design their own pyramids.
It’s a lot of work but over the last few years I’ve been able to refine the process. They use the 3D software to slice a pyramid in half and then use the scribble tool to create tunnels. The reason there are 2 parts is that I have them print a mirror image of the first pyramid so that when they get put together the tunnels are hidden.
The fun part for me is showing them how to change out the filament and get the 3D printer ready for printing. The stoked part for them is when they take their pyramid off the printer.
