ThinkFun normally sells its construction sets online and in retail stores, but this week the company has made available three Maker Studio Construction Sets available to download and 3D print for free.
The construction sets have been published to the MakerBot Thingiverse, and can be used to create variety of cool vehicles and constructions using a few other easily obtainable part such as plastic bottle or cardboard boxes.
The kits provide a selection of gears, winches, and propellers sets, together with connectors, hubcaps, and hole punches to allow children or adults to explore basic engineering and design. Makerbot writes :
