3D Printers

Maker Club

Early on in my 3D Printing experience, I immediately became interested in designing connecting parts. After some fails, some lessons and minor success, I took a break. I came back to this project and now created some simple connecting parts I call "Building Sticks". The goal for the Building Sticks was two-fold.

4th Graders in New Jersey Design and 3D Print Boats That Float in Order to Learn Geometry

I am often approached by teachers and school administrators who want to provide the best possible technology to their students. One of the first things they ask me is, How can we introduce 3D printing into the classroom? For me, that's a very simple question to answer, as the possibilities are rea...

Jaw-Dropping Classroom 3D Printer Creations

After the school day has ended at J.H. Rose High School, Rob Puckett and his two sons, Calder and Rylan, watch a nozzle in a white box extrude resin. It's a scene reminiscent of 1976, when neighbors would crowd around a family's microwave and stare at a hotdog cooking in under a minute.

I backed the Mod-t 3D printer from New Matter on Indiegogo when it was being funded. While I am waiting for its May 2015 delivery, I wanted to learn more about 3D printers and how they can be used...

The MAKE Lab @ Texas State University

uge paradigm shifts in museum culture are underway as a variety of institutions are engaging in 3D digitization to democratize their collections through the digitization of priceless artifacts and bringing access to the masses (Milroy & Rozefelds, 2015). Scientists in the fields of anthropology and paleontology have been using photogrammetry techniques to capture and record measurements of physical objects, but technological advancements now enable high quality digital scanning with specialized hardware, such as the Makerbot Digitizer (costs approximately $800) and the NextEngine 3D scanner (costs approximately $3,000).

Though academic institutions and museums are using costly 3D scanning equipment for their photogrammetry and 3D digitization efforts (see previous post), there are several free 3D scanning apps that allow users to capture photos taken 360 degrees around and object and easily generate virtual copies and 3D models on their own.
