VESSELS

VESSELS

In this 2 part lesson, students will be design and 3D print their own vessel model. In the first lesson, students will design a perfume bottle suitable for holding between 50ml and 100ml of liquid. In the second lesson, the students will calculate the flow rate of their perfume bottle and evaluate their design, making improvements where necessary.
