Tuskegee Airmen - 3D Design Challenge

Prints (0)


SummaryChallenge: Create and share a 3D design that celebrates the contribution of the Tuskegee Airmen and/or other African American Pioneers in Aviation and Space with the hashtag #TuskegeeAirmen. List this design as a source for your model. A search for 3D printable models related to the Tuskegee Airmen or other African American pioneers in aviation or space returns 0 hits. This is no surprise given previous experience searching 3D repositories for models related to Martin Luther King, Jr. http://designmaketeach.com/2014/01/16/3d-printing-martin-luther-king-jr/ The lack of models provides a rich opportunity for students, educators and 3d designers to make a significant contribution to the world. My contribution is a 3D printable version of the patch of the 332nd Fighter Group. The design uses an image from Wikimedia https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shield_of_the_332nd_Fighter_Group.svg which was edited in Inkscape and then imported and remixed in Tinkercad.
