Introducing the XinaBox 3D printing app
Introducing an app that allows you to quickly and easily design bespoke 3D enclosures tailored to your xChip circuits.
A screen-grab of our 3d printing app
With all our focus on interactive and engaging education, XinaBox is delighted to present our 3D printing app. It is very easy to use: you do not need any design skills to build and print enclosures.
Using our app you can design bespoke enclosures for your xChip circuits that can instantly be sent to a 3D printer. And for anyone who has waited hours for something to 3D print only to find it is not right: you can be confident that the designs you make in our app will work perfectly for the configuration of xChips you specify.
A simple 3d printed enclosure
Our app is built to accommodate all the different types of xChip, and these are selected from a drop-down menu for ease of use. Pre-defined settings such as the overall size of the enclosure, standoff sizes and even cutaway sections for the lid allow you to tailor make a unique enclosure suited to your needs. And we've even added support for the BBC micro:bit too.
This new development allows you to teach and learn creative problem-solving in a real life setting along with the critical thinking skills, mathematics and design process techniques that everyone needs in order to be part of the 4th industrial revolution.
