For non-educational or personal printing, you can order 3D prints of your designs on Shapeways
Print here at Shapways' create page: http://www.shapeways.com/creator/
Wouldn't it be amazing to just press a button and have any design you imagine appear right in front of you, already made?
That technology exists right now and Piedmont is cutting EDGE! We have a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printer!http://youtu.be/AKTSdW7-H3Q
Steps to Use the 3Dprinter!
Go to Tinkercad, Make a Free account and design.
Makerbot recommends Tinkercad or 123Design but you can try these if you have other needs
You can also choose the ready-made designs you want to print at Thingiverse
This is Ms. Gurthie's place for students at Piedmont and elsewhere to find resources to fuel their passions. Besides making fun lesson ideas for teachers, I wanted this space to provide PD for students too!
