Magnetic Keychain

We started out by brainstorming ideas. Someone in our group came up with the idea of a keychain. We all thought it was a good idea and then, one of us came up with magnets. Then, you could put on any letters you want. We then researched online if there was anything like a magnetic keychain. It didn't show anything like it. That is how we came up with the idea!

Maire designed the keychain on her tinkercad. She would choose what shape she wanted, and make sure it fits on the base of the design. She would go to the shape section and drag the shape on the rectangle to make it fit perfectly. Tinkercad was a very helpful source for us. It helped with the shapes, and it could make anything put on it perfect. That is how we designed it.

We really only had a couple of problems. The main one was that when it came out of the printer, it didn't print the actual chain. The keychain still looks fine though. The letters were also a little off centered. I think that the keychain still looks fine though! That is the only problem we had!
