Futurologists say that very soon, for repairing a car, for example, spare parts will not be sent from the factory, but according to the requested model, the 3D printer will print them in the workshop according to the drawings obtained from the database of the factory that developed and tested the part. Many schools now have the opportunity to use a 3D printer.
As if anticipating the promises of futurologists, PASCO SCIENTIFIC proposes to expand the functionality of manufactured products using 3D printing. For example, for a smart cart, it is possible to print some additional parts.
In the section “do it yourself” https://www.pasco.com/diy / you will find 3D model drawing files in Solid works format (.SLDPRT). According to the download statistics, the Smart Cart demo corpus is popular.
Recall Smart Cart is a smart trolley that, thanks to built-in sensors, measures speed, acceleration, and position changes. It is used to demonstrate Newton’s laws and study kinematics and dynamics by transmitting captured data over a Bluetooth® wireless network.
For demonstration in front of the whole class, it is clearer to use oversized smart trolleys. There is no need to purchase a new device. Using the drawings downloaded from the manufacturer’s website on a 3D printer, you can print several parts of the casing, which, after connecting to a smart trolley, visually enlarges it several times. The casing is simply put on top, while the possibility of demonstrating experiments on a metal rail also remains.
For the convenience of printing on small printers, the body is divided into 3 parts, which are connected (glued) after printing.
