Assignment 1: Jenkins

For Assignment 1, I didn’t have the 3D Model of myself, so I created a Bowtie using TinkerCAD.
Using TinkerCad was very similar to Unity in the way that a user interacts with the models and manipulates shapes or drags in objects. For me, it was relatively simple to create this model.
The difficult part came with 3D Printing the model, because I hadn’t done it before so I didn’t know exactly the limitations of the printers. First, my model didn’t have a flat surface to use as a base when building, so it had to be built standing up, which doesn’t help with intricate parts like the star or smaller parts like the clip in the back.
If I were to do this again, I would definitely create those parts separately and glue them together.
