3D Printable Model
The Happiness Rocket 3D printable model can be found on TinkerCAD. You can download it as an STL file for 3D printing. The large version is 200mm high, the medium one 100mm and the small one 50mm. All three versions have a 2mm body width for strength. You may want to print with a raft to prevent the model from slipping on your print bed.

3D Printed Prototypes
Posted about Happiness Rocket by Curve

I've been creating various 3D printed prototypes of a physical Happiness Rocket. I'm modelling the rocket in TinkerCad and printing them out on my Ender 3D printer. I'm starting with 1/2 and 1/4 sized models and working up to one that will house the Micro:bit and lights. I'm thinking about issues such as safety, strength and how it feels in the hand.
