The project I decided to take on was creating a fish tank with a moving creature inside of it. I modeled my concept after electronic fish tanks like this one.
For quiet a few frustrating hours I struggled to alter my design so that it would actually be printable. I tested out a variety of supports or no supports just to check all the potentials. I trial ran every angle of support for Dremel supports in Meshmixer and every single one would not print in the Dremel software.
For the 3D printer project I decided that I wanted to use Tinkercad to create a 3D model of an axoltl.
If I had to guess I would say not everyone knows what an axoltl actually is, which is understandable. Basically axoltl‘s are a type salamander that stay in their larva form, meaning that they live underwater their whole lives and retain gills. I have a pet axoltl and I had always thought it would be super awesome to create a 3D model of one. My overall goal then was that I wanted to create a basic model of an axoltl that I could print with another end goal of sharing it potentially on Thingiverse.
