3D Scanning and Printing
Updated for 2024 evaluation standards!
- Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s)
- Document your work on the group work page and reflect on your individual page what you learned about characteristics of your printer(s)
- Design and 3D print an object (small, few cm3, limited by printer time) that could not be easily made subtractively
- 3D scan an object (and optionally print it)
- Identify the advantages and limitations of 3D printing
- Apply design methods and production processes to show your understanding of 3D printing.
- Demonstrate how scanning technology can be used to digitize object(s)
Have you answered these questions?
- Linked to the group assignment page
- Explained what you learned from testing the 3D printers
- Documented how you designed and 3D printed your object and explained why it could not be easily made subtractively
- Documented how you scanned an object
- Included your original design files for 3D printing
- Included your hero shots
Define cannot be easily made subtractively
Answer: Your model has undercuts, overhangs, print-in-place or nested parts (that can't be disassembled), etc.
Should I include my scanned file(s)
Answer: Not necessary, files can be very large. Screenshots documenting the process and result(s) are fine.
