Day 247 - Geek glasses fix!

Today we printed a modern 3D-printed version of the classic "taped glasses" fix. A little plastic piece fell off C's glasses and got lost, and without it the arm of the glasses springs out to the side, which is funny but not so great for reading. C designed this replacement piece himself, using calipers to measure the required dimensions and Tinkercad to build the 3D model. Along the way we had a great lesson on using the Align, Group, and Ruler tools, and re-measured and re-designed quite a few times before it was just the right shape and size. Here is the clear plastic piece superglued into its new home:
