Creating your own GoPiGo Parts

In lesson 3 of the Engineering Design Process unit, students will learn how to take the concepts taught in lesson 2 and extend them into their own creations such as customized bumpers or a new way to mount a sensor.

3. Investigate: Attaching Items across the top

As you observed the different types of Pegs in step #2, did you start to wonder if you could attach pegs in different ways? Using Tinkercad you can create pegs in any position you like. One suggestion is to attaching something across the top of the GoPiGo. Attached is an .stl file with four pegs and a beam spanning across the top. Download the file and import it into Tinkercad to begin using it.
