Students First Day 3D Printing

Today Dr. Parry’s 3D printing class got the chance to try out a basic design on the printers in the classroom. The students were excited to get started and watch the process. Unfortunately, 3D printing can take some time especially if the machine is not heated to the correct temperature at the time of printing. The students patience was tested as they eagerly waited for the machine to begin. The first attempt at the design failed, however, after bringing the part that lays the plastic closer to the heated board the students saw a success.
