I am a mechanical engineer working at a startup development company. I've used Arduinos and 3D printing in support of new product development and recently learned Fusion 360. I'm here more for hobby ideas to play with in off hours. I have access to a 3D printer, CNC mill, lathe and other shop equipment and want to push the envelope in what I can do.

Mostly, I would like to put together kits for kids to assemble: Lego-like building blocks for younger kids, motorized vehicles for middle grades, robotics for older kids to learn both the physical and programming sides. Looking for projects others post for ideas.

Hi lasergirl,

Lots of 3d printer interested members here on the forum, so do share your experiences and ask members if you have any queries.

Hey @lasergirl

Β  Β  I stumbled across these mechanical robot kits a few days ago.

It seems like K thru 12 kids would love putting this kind of stuff together. Β What do you think?

@thrandell Thanks! Those would be fun kits. Looks like a great site for finding parts, too. Good resource.
