Don’t let the lack of activity on this blog fool you — this has been one of the busiest semesters for the 3D printing service in recent memory. So busy, in fact, that I kept forgetting to photograph completed prints!
Apologies to those of you who submitted personal items for printing — I have had to prioritize project-based prints and so there’s a bit of a back log. I am hopeful I’ll finish most things on the list before the new year.
Good luck to you in all your end-of-semester tasks, and I hope you all have a relaxing holiday break.
Students are back in classes and the service is still humming along. Visit our Getting Started and Policies pages and submit a model to be printed for free!
Another semester under our belts! We had an average of three printing requests per week and put several hundred hours of printing time into our machines. All in all it was a great semester for the service.
We’re still around in the summer so if you have any ideas, please send them our way!
