  • “The baby’s parents took him to the emergency room where it was determined Kaiba would require a splint being inserted in order to hold open his bronchial tube, to hopefully allow the tissue to grow and heal around it properly. Doctors decided to use a 3D printer to create the splint as time was of the essence in order to Kaiba to survive his ordeal. Kaiba was first imaged in order for technicians to get accurate dimensions to then have those measurements used to create a computer model, which acted as the blueprint. With that information, the 3D printer was able to print out the custom splint doctors needed in about a day.” Image from http://goo.gl/LeRpyw Doctors decided to use a 3D printer to create the splint as time was of the essence in order to Kaiba to survive his ordeal.

  • Instructions and pictures: http://goo.gl/RDNnL
  • • Polylactic acid is a thermoplastic polyester • Made from renewable resources and biodegradable (http://goo.gl/6Tln1H) • Safe for Food Contact • Roughly: 20 / lb (hard), $30 / lb (soft)
  • • Impact resistant and tough • Hard & Glossy • Petroleum-based • Flammable • Prone to cracking if cooled too quickly • Usually bends before it breaks • Has a strong, toxic smell • Strength is relatively equal to PLA • Roughly $20/lb http://goo.gl/McxHzl
  • • thingiverse.com • 3d.si.edu • Paid: shapeways.com (can also sell here – think Etsy for 3D printers)

  • • Free • Easy to Use • Basic Functionality
  • • Open Source • Uses Code instead of freehand
  • Tips • Patience the learning curve is high • Design in Orthogonal View • Uses Units, for ease 1 unit = 1mm • Use Makerware Software for size
  • - Download an item from http://www.thingiverse.com - Edit in Maker Software and Print
  • • Make it Stand • DIY: Enhancements & Parts • Make Your Own Printer • Use a Glass plate • With PLA, use a cooling Fan to avoid sticking

  • Best Practices
  • • Flexible • Room for “Hang Outs” • Lots of Electric Outlets* • Sealed Concrete Floors recommended • Easy to access supplies/cleaning equipment • Good ventilation • Space for hardware/Space for play Images from http://www.flickr.com/photos/raster/ * Is needed - 220 volts or even three-phase power.
  • • Workbenches/Long Tables • Shelving for storing supplies & ongoing projects • Whiteboards (or Idea Paint!) Furniture can be used or made Image from: http://goo.gl/2NsK6Y
  • • Equipment for each Maker Station • Cleaning Tools • Collaboration Tools • Laptops with specialized software • Handy? Make your own Filament Image from http://bit.ly/NrdOBb Buy used
