So, our school has a glowforge that we have had for a few months. I’m the one kind of “in charge” of it and I’ve learned a whole lot thanks to this forum. Our school is an alternative school for students who haven’t been very successful in traditional school and I like to introduce them to as much technology as I can to help them develop some real world experience. We have a 3d printer that they can use, recording software, green screen, etc.
I don’t teach students directly but I do train their teachers on technology and will often let them know what we have available and suggest some ways they can incorporate its use into their curriculum. To do this, I usually have a session where they get some hands on time with the tech and leave with a “thing” that they made.
So, what is a good first project that’s pretty easy to figure out and for me to show them that they could make in order to let them have some experience with it? I’m thinking like keychain, maybe an ornament or something like that. Just looking for some ideas that don’t require a lot of design work because A) I’m not that great at it yet and B) I definitely can’t teach anyone how to do it well.
So, any links to thing generators or any other ideas would be great. Thanks for any input.
