How to design a keyring using TinkerCAD.
Poppy Ergo Jr is a small robotic arm with a great educational potential. For this reason we want to show you, how to go through the first stage of using it – assembling. Of course, you can find assembling instruction online, but the process is quite complex and not always intuitive, therefore we decided to record this movie. Enjoy!

Working with Marty the robot can be a great adventure. It starts very easily, even if you buy the kit for assembling or if you decide to print some parts on your own. There’s a very clear and helpful guide, how to assemble Marty.
However, the next steps: connecting to WiFi, calibrating and connecting to Scratch platform, can be more challenging in some cases. Even if there’s still a quite clear tutorial online, Marty not always responds as he is supposed to.
For this reason we decided to record this tutorial and to show you the whole process with some difficulties to overcome.

TinkerCAD is a great online 3D modelling programme, which can be used by anyone, including children and beginners in the field of 3D modelling and 3D printing.
This is also a very useful, simple and user-friendly tool for those who want to design or customise educational robots.
In this tutorial we present more advanced functionalities of this programme: using additional workplane using a ruler, aligning and grouping the objects. They can be used in working with any type of robots you have in mind.
You can use it even with the primary school kids as introducing to 3D design and 3D printing.
