We tried making lots of different types of currency. Here are the different ones we made.
How we came up with the idea:
Star-shaped money is difficult to make, but we can get iron easily. In space money needs to be difficult to get. We think star will be good but it will be pointy so will add a circle so that it won’t hurt. We think it would be the perfect money.
Materials for Sphere Star:
Marble+rock. Aluminum foil on the top because it will make the object shiny, and a yellow star for the base. We will make it on Tinkercad.
The minimum value is 2. We came up with the idea because even when people are working hard and if they cant have much money then it is unfair. Usually in the moon we have stars So we put the star on top of the coin.
It is made of crystals. We chose this design with crystals because we like crystals and the name is STAR CRYSTAL COIN.
The Prototyping Process
We had some mistakes with our prototypes, but we fixed them and made our designs better.
The M and H were not on the star
The ring and the star were not connected and it is pointy
The M is missing on the coin
It was too pointy
The circle was too big
The size was OK and it was not pointy
The first coins had no numbers on them
The second coin was too small and melted on the 3D printer
One of the crystals was missing
The coin was too small and melted on the 3D printer
The coin was a good size but the crystals were too low down
Jobs and Payment
Money is very important and people need to get money when they have a job.
We planned how much different people would get for different jobs.
Here are our 3D models. We made models on Tinkercad and printed them on the 3D printers in school.
