The Ozobot Creators of this month could not have come at a better time. I am currently introducing Good Game Design, UX design and disign thinking in general while exploring Ozobots! Pulling in 3D modeling would be botha bonus and a challenge for some of my awesome 6th grade students! As newbies to my classroom, they have great interest in the 3D printer I have!
I would love to know what you used to create the model and your process for getting the measurements correct and so forth.. I would like to challenge my students to create a model and want to guide them appropriately. I have typically used tinkercad with my students, but your advise would be great.

I'm glad you enjoy my design! I used Tinkercad to design the costumes, so if you upload this base file to Tinkercad it should be easy for you to edit or add to it. I teach children and adults of all ages how to 3D model with Tinkercad tutorials of varying difficulty. Tinkercad is such a great introductory tool for the classroom. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
As far as the measurements, honestly it was trial and error. I had to go through 15 previous prototypes of this design before I got the correct measurements. Persistence is key when creating precise designs.
Best of luck on your endeavors! Post makes of the costumes if you end up printing them, I would love to see them.

Could you post your other versions? I attempted to make the ghost but it doesn't look nearly as nice as yours. And the Clue ones are really cool!

Thanks for the kind words! I actually do not plan to post the other files, as part of my hope is that people will be inspired to design their own. I used the website Tinkercad to make most of the files, and I recommend that to any beginners or people who don't want or need a fancy CAD program.
