    Default Student Projects

    I thought it might be nice to have a little area where students projects might be detailed. What got me thinking about this thread was a project that a girl started today in class.

    Project: Barbie Coffin.

    A student in my sculpture class is casting a barbie in pewter (lead free for all those safety people)The barbie will be cast solid in a two part plaster mold. The pewter barbie will have a form fit case made from mahogony. The student will scan the barbie, calculate some sort of clearance around the barbie, make the sbp file and cut the depression.

    What does a pewter barbie in a mahogony box mean, I don't know.

    We just had our Regional Contest, I thought I would show some of our projects that my High School Students used the ShopBot on. The first is a bed that the student designed some elliptical curves in.

    This Guitar was made from scratch, he used the ShopBot to cutout the middle hole as well as the inlaid grooves around it, as well as the fretboard and the grooves for the metal pieces along the frets.

    My beginners used the ShopBot on even their first "beginner boxes"

    This student got the design off one of his T-Shirts, scanned it in, then imported into MicroStation the Cad software we use and drew over the image, then exported into Parts Wizard to cut his design

    We're very impressed - so good to see another talented set of young 'botters, with an especially inspired instructor out there! Please tell us more about the tall cabinet - there seems to be a lot of opportunity for the 'bot there! We'd love to know.
    You should be proud - you have figured out how to integrate the ShopBot as a tool in the shop (the means), instead as an end in itself - so many other HS programs that offer cnc's don't have the resources or skilled staff to deploy much more than a "tech ed" environment, which may limit student's involvement to creating part files and cutting on pre-made blanks. You're obviously integrating CNC maching into your curriculum, and allowing the students to use it to solve individual project steps.

    Best,

    One of my seniors, the Golden Hammer winner built this earthmover. The wheels - tread pattern and name on the sidewalls were done on our benchtop Shopbot.
