3D Printer

This year we welcomed an additional 3D printer to our high-tech makerspace. Students have been using the Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2+ printers for various school assignments, and we will show off their projects here. Collaboration and problem solving are a huge part of being a maker, so we hope that you will benefit by learning from their experiences (both positive AND negative). Seeing other 3D projects can be inspiring!

We do stress that if you will be printing that you take the time to design your own authentic project as the act of designing is a huge component of printing and a great learning experience.

Some free online programs to try:

Tinkercad 

SketchUp 

 

Please make sure to save your files using .STL

Come and meet Sherlock and Watson today! …yes we have named the 3D printers…
