The ability to design useful products that can be 3dprinted and then used, is vital in the teaching process to keep students enthused about learning. In this lesson your students will learn how to model a smart phone case such as an iphone. The technique used in the lesson can be adapted to any brand of smart phone e.g. Samsung, Sony or HTC etc. All the students will need to do is google the dimensions of their brand of smart phone e.g. the length, width and thickness and then they can model and 3D print their own case.
As with all the lessons, everything is ready to teach. We recommend that the teacher 3D prints out the example case to show the class. The teaching powerpoint outlines the step by step process of modelling the case in Fusion 360. This can be uploaded to students computers so they can work through the lesson at their own pace after the teacher introduction/demonstration. As with all lessons there is also a homework task that reflects on the lesson objectives and also includes a research task about ‘design thinking’.
