Initially run virtually during lockdown, the spicy tower project was a collaborative design project; a fun social project during lockdown periods. This project consisted of the design and 3D print of a tower where each floor is designed by a different person. This was a great project for students to learn and train new CAD skills as they had complete freedom for their design and weekly support from other society members for any technical issues. This was an artistic challenge which had to take into account the constraints of FDM 3D printing technologies and include different clever linking mechanisms between each floor. Completed designs were then printed by someone who had access to a 3D printer and tested with its surrounding floors. Now that we have access to in-person facilities, this project will be concluded with the final prints and assembly.
