Since our Maker Spot opened, we have had some pretty cool stuff to print on our 3-D printer! Below are just a few of the things our Tarleton community has designed or found to print:
If you want join in the fun here are some resources to get you started:
TinkerCAD - A free 3-D design program that you can use right in your web browser. Start from scratch with the building blocks available, or import other objects and modify them. Be sure to check out their tutorials for more ideas and lessons on how to use it to it's fullest.
Thingiverse - An online library of 3-D printable objects. Find objects to print right away, or to modify to fit your needs.
YouMagine - Another online library of 3-D printable objects. Not quite as large as Thingiverse, but it has some different designs.
When you are designing for the 3-D printer, keep in mind that our print capacity is 9"X9"X20", or 229mmX229mmX508mm.
Happy designing and we hope to see you in the Maker Spot soon!
