Oh, the places you'll go!!!
We've got a super treat in store for 3D printing fans this week! In addition to a skull we've got a bunch of files to share with you that combine to make interchangeable Safari vehicle components! These files were designed by our friend, Dave Perloff, and are very flexible! You can print all the components for students to assemble for dramatic play and exploration but here are a few ideas to take it to the next level.
The Safari Car files are coming to you a bit differently than usual. When you click the download icon on the 3D Printed Wonders page, instead of the usual stl download, you'll open a slide show. It's got every stl file you'll need along with printing directions. Best of all, when Dave tweaks and refines his designs you'll have access to the most current version!
AND if you've never tried flexible filament, this is an awesome time to do it. Dave recommends printing the tires and headlights in orange or green flexible filament by Solutech. They seem to work best. We have the green filament and it works great! Please let us know how things turn out and happy printing!
