We love going to the beach and enjoy the summer days playing, drinking and just having fun.
And the kids always love to play in the sand and build stuff.
We all know to make sand castles with the sand and I thought that, that could use a nice 3D printing upgrade.
something to 'expand' their creativity by giving them the right tools to expres ther ideas in a satisfying way.
Because the molds were also intended for smal children (from age 3) they had to be easy to wield and without too much complexity.
This would also improve build time and eliminate small parts (that would only get lost in the sand)
I Designed 3 molds that support each other and allows connected placement to create endless possebilities.
The sides of all the walls/towers have been slanted just a bit to make the extraction easier.
#1 Small round tower
#2 Walls section
#3 Big square tower
- Always use wet sand (not watery)
- to get the battlements nice, press the sand after the first scoop filling the mold.
- its better to start building walls and then the towers.
Enjoy the beach! ;-)
