Hey,

I'm with the MakerBot PR team. We really like this design, and I wanted to know a little more about the student who designed it. What was his background in CAD modeling? What led him to design this?

Do you run a drafting and design class?

Keep up the fantastic work!

Navin, MakerBot PR

Hi Navin,

The student that designed this was in grade 10, in our "Drafting & Design 11: Engineering and Architecture" course. He really liked the project idea, "Designing A Multi-part Toy", and wanted to do something challenging. He spent a lot of extra time (more than the alloted class time) to complete this project. He even redesigned the doors when we noticed a flaw after printing. He is definitely a very passionate, intelligent student. He is now in Grade 11 and I'm hoping to see him in the next level of Drafting & Design here at Centennial.

Excellent to hear. Glad to see he was able to push his skills past the limits; it's very inspirational. We'll be following you closely. We're building a database of designs by students, so I'd definitely love to see what else your students make.

Best,

Navin
