Adventures in 3D Printing Part VII

One of the things Jasmina and I really wanted to test was changing the filament midway through the print.  We selected A Better Dragon for this experiment.  This is quite a complex print and the creator of the design noted that it could fail even with supports (if you don’t have...

Adventures in Digitizing Objects Part II

For our next object, we selected something that had a little more detail. It was glow-in-the-dark glasses a prize from the youth summer reading program.

Adventures in 3-D Printing Part V

Jasmina and I decided to test the 3-D printer’s ability to print multiple objects at once and to see what would happen when a print job is paused.  We selected the “Gem-in-a-ring” as it fit our test requirements:  we could select different size rings to print at the same time and the projected needed to be paused in order...

Upon hearing RadioLab’s podcast on the Taung Child Skull, I knew Jasmina and I need to try it!  The skull would be our largest and longest print test to date:  an estimated 9 1/2 hours for 6″ x 4″ x 3-1/8″ skull using 108grams of filament.  That is, if it would work….   I began...

After getting our initial test print completed, Tegan and I wanted to test out the Makerbot desktop software.
