Chinese Lantern

3D model description

A simple Chinese lantern. With a LED inside, it looks pretty. This is intended to be a starting project for students to learn about 3D design. It was created with 123D Design using two cylinders and a sphere and then manipulated using MeshMixer (Reduce, Make Patterns). Please scale it up or down, depending on the size needed. Do use a raft for printing.

Please note that the STL file is pretty big, around 100 MB because of the structure.

STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.

When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
