DIY LEGO Minifig Accessories

Students get to customize their LEGO collection by designing and 3D printing custom accessories!

The goal of this lesson is to use the design process to create accessories compatible with LEGO mini-figures. The advantage of this lesson is that the objects can be modeled and printed quickly. At the end of the lesson, students will have their 3D printed accessory. Given the small size of the modeled objects, it is quite possible to do several iterations during the allotted class time.
