Shalvey High 2017 - Engineering
Product design, manufacturing and marketing with year 10 students from Shalvey High SchoolSmartboard Notes:
Ideas for design + manufacture + marketing of product. An 8-week project run at Mt Druitt college of TAFE in 2017.
Design of variations to the Fidget spinner is done using INVENTOR software. Autocad can also be used.
The bearings are standard skateboard bearings: OD=22mm, ID=8mm and thickness=7mm.
Manufacture of the spinner is done using a 3D printer or a CNC router. Both use plastic.
Both methods cost a similar amount in raw materials, but when time is included the 3D print can be quite a bit more costly.
The 3D printer was used to print the first 2 spinners.
A single bearing design.
A double bearing design.
