I was struggling with my limited knowledge of 3D printing and my attempt at Google Sketch-Up made me realize that bridging between consumption and creation would be difficult for my students if I didn't reach out for help. Nathan immediately responded to my inquiry emails with a follow-up phone call where we arranged for him to work with our after-school program. He was more than willing to tackle a whole day school presentation too but we decided to start small instead.
Radiant Fabrication's software Radiant Li uses an interface that students can understand. I can't wait to watch it in the hands of our students. In addition to a user friendly software, their 3D printer scans an object, you can then edit it in the software, or choose to print it in FOUR colors. I know FOUR colors. For those of you who have a 3D printer already, you understand my excitement about the multiple features and different colors.
Stay tuned for their upcoming visits on Feb. 18 and March 25 at our after-school Design Lab program.
