The Fujita Scale 3D Design Challenge is to create a series of 3D printable models that illustrate the categories of tornado damage from F0-F5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fujita_scale
Entries will be judged on 3 Criteria:
-Accuracy: Do the models accurately represent the Fujita Scale categories? ie. Would the majority of meteorologists or engineers in the field agree with the classifications?
-Realism: Do the models show realistic man made structures and vegetation?
-Printability: Can the models be printed on the majority of consumer FDM printers?
-Bonus Category: Description of design process, the models and/or tornado info.
Prize: 3D Design Champion card. Physical card mailed within US. Digital card for international winners. Designs received before 4/30/21014 and linked as a remix of this thing will be considered.
More info about the origins of this challenge and the designs from a 2013 STEM camp can be found at http://designmaketeach.com/2014/04/14/fujita-scale-3d-design-challenge/
