Meccano (3D Printed), by Jos Richters

MeccanoThe idea was for children aged 10-12 to create materials which could be easily assembled into new objects during Code Club meeting hours. The Code Club is a weekly organized, Wednesday afternoon meeting at the local library where children are encouraged to be creative. The children are involved with using a 3D Printer, a 3D Pen, programming small robots, making music with fruits, and lots of other ideas (including this Meccano idea).

When the project came along my first thoughts were about Meccano. A toy from my youth which consisted of metal strips and bars. Because of the development of Lego's and Play Mobile the metal Meccano disappeared. But I felt that Meccano is still a great toy which is allows children to play and learn about the basics of constructing and gain some technical skills. Because we all hear on the Dutch news technical educated people are in high demand I decided to start using the 3D Printer to (re)create the Meccano parts.
