A lot of times when sharing about 3D printing, I don't always reveal the hours that have been absorbed in troubleshooting our devices. Reality is that 3D printing at the consumer level is sort of like what dot matrix printers are to printing today. We are at the beginning and many things will continue to evolve. But let's talk about the most common issues.... Website
Our first graders have been doing research about what insects are and what they need to survive. Last week and today they took their art sketches of their selected insect and transferred it to a digital medium through the Morphi 3D app. Below is the tutorial that I used with our students to introduce them to Morphi and designing their insect.
After designing 3 versions of their insect, students selected between glow in the dark green or blue for the filament of their insects to be printed on our 3D printers. Soon the insects who have come to life will find a home in their habitats created in art class. Check out the complete lesson at www.thingiverse.com/thing:1677342
