Further to my previous question. When printing these, did you print with supports or allow the printer to add supports automatically?

My printer doesn't print supports automatically, I have to choose that option. I usually print with supports. If I want an animal w/o supports I usually do a low res, small print to see how it will print w/o supports.

I'm going to try this lesson with my year 7 class this march. I'm planning on using either 3 or 4 - 45min lessons. Any advice?

You could give the option for students to pair up to help those students who may struggle with the software more. 3-4 45 min lessons should be plenty.

Thanks for the reply. This will be my first lesson using 3D printing. I'm still very much a newbie but I've been enjoying tinkering around and think the student will love it! Looking forward to giving it a try :)
