It will be secured to the pages with a binder clip and will have space for two pens or pencils.


  • space for two pens/pencils
  • clips to a section of pages OR the entire notebook
  • no longer than 80mm
  • no wider than 50mm
  • no thicker than 20mm
  • something that personalizes the design

Step 1 – Make the following measurements using calipers.  Record these measurements in your engineering notebook:

  • measure the thickness of the notebook
  • measure the diameter (thickness) of the pens or pencils

Step 2 – begin your design in tinkercad

Step 3 – when you are done submit your keychain following the instructions below.  Then answer questions 1-3 about your project on your project website.  Remember you can reach your project website by logging in at sites.

Submitting your 3d design:

BEFORE you submite your design you must make it public in tinkercad.  Here’s how:

1. in the design view click on Design.

2. choose Properties from the menu.

3. rename your design to something that makes sense.

4. change the Visibility from Private to Public.

When you are done click here to submit your design.
