Everybody needs chip clips. Even college students can’t always finish the whole bag 😉
Professor Shakespear is teaching a really interesting course in the spring called Armature and Surface: The Body (VART 2603). You should take it!
In the first half of the semester students will sculpt a scale model as a study of the skeletal structure, muscles, and tendons comprising the human body – Écorché.
We are helping her out with a small version, to get things started…
And look how it turned out!
Don’t let your old headphones (yes, we know most people now have earbuds) get tangled into a mess in your pocket – print one of these!
Do you want to decorate that new laptop you got? (with something besides the requisite LLBean sticker we all have) Our on-campus expert @bisrael.18 gave us a lesson today on how to use the new Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter. First try came out great. Thank you for getting us going! Looking forward to some creative ideas coming from the community for this machine.
We are working on an interesting project, partnering with the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum. We 3D scanned, and are now reproducing, a model sled for them at a slightly smaller scale than the original.
A while back we supported Professor Brown’s Bio Art class as they were introduced to 3D printing.
When a Professor wanted to explore an object in the art museum with their course, but the students could not touch it (for obvious reasons – it is really old!) The Bowdoin Maker Space came to the rescue by creating a 3D scan of the object and then printing it in resin (SLA) and in PLA. So the students visited the Bowdoin College Museum of Art to view the original object under the watchful eye of the curator, and then were able to get a sense of the tactile object by interacting with the facsimiles that we created.
Q: Who wants a museum lion?
The Bowdoin Magazine even wrote an article about how we scanned it to create the model: https://www.bowdoin.edu/news/2022/03/a-look-at-the-lions.html
This special lion was printed using Silver Raspberry MatterHackers Quantum PLA Filament
