Up until 2015 or so, there were very few plastics and resins for their respective types of 3D printers. Since then, there has been much work done to develop new an interesting resins and plastics for specialized uses, e.g., plastic filament … Continue reading
As part of the century celebration on campus, the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology; Digital Scholarship Lab; and Boatwright Library collaborated on the printing of a 2 foot by 3 foot terrain map of campus as it looked in … Continue reading
The following tutorial contains the remaining steps for creating a cube designed for 3D printing in which the cube consists of 3 interlocking components each made of smaller cubes (click here for the 1st part of the tutorial).
The following tutorial contains the bulk of the steps for creating a cube designed for 3D printing in which the cube consists of 3 interlocking components each made of smaller cubes. The remaining steps that would be necessary for preparing … Continue reading
Professors Ovidiu Lipan and Laura Runyen-Janecky approached the CTLT with the idea of developing a new fly experiment for introductory science students in the Integrated Quantitative Science course in which students would study the locomotion of various ages of a … Continue reading
As a collaborate project between University Communications, CTLT, and Boatwright Library, we developed the largest 3D print to be printed on a UR CTLT printer for inclusion in a video that documents the night culture in the library. The cubic … Continue reading
We were visited today by Richmond’s own WTVR senior reporter, Wayne Covil. He interviewed me as part of a story about the 3D printing of guns (see earlier post for background). Bottom-line, current low-cost 3D printers are not quite ready to … Continue reading
In the video below, I describe some of our recent activity regarding optimizing printing for our Solidoodle 3 3D printer including: printing with ABS using an enclosure (no ducted fan) printing with PLA using a ducted fan (no/open enclosure) using … Continue reading
As mentioned previously, I’m enclosing our Solidoodle 3 printer to try to get better results through minimizing warping and parts not sticking. As a slight aside, the Cubestick on glass is now working very well for sticking. The trick is … Continue reading
We’ve had some trouble with prints sticking to the print bed over the last year and a half since we acquired our first 3D printer. It’s mostly a matter of choice. It’s not that we want poor adhesion, but we … Continue reading
