  • Depending on your audience, this might be too rudimentary. I get retired engineers in to the lab and they look disappointed in me when I steer them towards TC
  • Has amazing warehouse of goods you can import and use/mash-up
  • Transcript

    • 1. MY BOSS "We see the library as not being in the book business, but being in the learning business and the exploration business and the expand-your-mind business."
    • 2. “The way people used to use libraries had a lot in common with the way they’d shop at supermarkets. “Now we’re incorporating more aspects of the kitchen.”
    • 3. OUR MAKERBOTS USE PLA PLA, or Polylactic Acid 1 SPOOL COSTS $43
    • 4. 1 spool prints 392 chess pieces
    • 5. This name tag took 11 minutes
    • 6. This little guy took 45 ABOUT OUR MAKERBOT
    • 7. Software Software Tinkercad: browser based FREE as in beer integrates with Thingiverse easy
    • 8. Software Software Tinkercad: Utterly reliant on Internet connection Not precise Engineers will hate you Was almost killed off last year
    • 9. 123D DESIGN ONLINE
    • 10. Software Google SketchUp requires download
    • 11. Software Google SketchUp has awesome warehouse
    • 12. Software
    • 13. Software 1. Tries to sell you stuff all the time 2. Pro versions are very expensive 3. Learning curve steep for casual users 4. Hard to make smaller objects
    • 14. Software Makerware: slices up your object and sends it to the Makerbot MakerWare is not a design program. The object is built from the bottom up, one sliver at a time.
    • 15. Thingiverse clearinghouse for the 3D designs of others. Allows you to download and alter according to Creative Commons licensing. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:130412
    • 16. GETTING STARTED Sign-up can Sign-up can take aafew take few minutes to minutes to process! process! Create accounts with TinkerCad and Thingiverse
    • 17. Try these training programs!
    • 18. Return to Tinkercad and Select “Create New Design”
    • 19. Practice dragging Geometric shapes onto the Workplane
    • 20. Practice changing your view using your mouse and the onscreen tools.
    • 21. Download for 3D Printing as STL
    • 22. USING MAKERWARE Uses algorithm slices your digital file into very thin layers to prepare it for 3D printing.
    • 23. SIMPLE TO USE 3 Buttons, 2 that actually do something helpful.
    • 24. ADD brings your file into the program.
    • 25. ADD brings Navigate to your file your into the program.file
    • 26. Put the object on the platform ADD brings Navigate to your file your into the program.file
    • 27. Rafts and Supports Should be removed from the project when it is finished printing. Supports help prints with extreme overhangs. If you have an overhang that extends out at greater than 45 degrees, then you need a support. Rafting helps with uneven shapes or prints that have trouble sticking to the build plate
    • 28. The Magical Preview Button! Put the object on the platform ADD brings Navigate to your file your Click MAKE to preview into the program.file IMPORTANT!
    • 29. ALL these presets can stay the same. Put the object on the platform ADD brings Navigate to your file your into the program.file These are up to you
    • 30. The Magical Preview Button! Put the object on the platform ADD brings Navigate to your file your into the program.file Won’t effect prints in progress
    • 31. The Magical Preview Button! How long will this take? What this thing will actually look like!
    • 32. What was promised on Thingiverse.
    • 33. What the preview told me.
    • 34. The Magical Preview Button! Put the object on the platform ADD brings Navigate to your file your into the program.file Do it! You know you want to.
    • 35. MAKERBOT MAINTENANCE Wonky PLA load Unaligned platten the 2 things that cause the most problems are:
    • 36. MAKERBOT MAINTENANCE The 2 things that cause the most problems are: Unleveled build plate Wedging Velcro-ing Misalignment Bad PLA Load Air Printing PLA feeder Clicking Filament wadding at head • • • • • •
    • 37. MAKERBOT MAINTENANCE Wonky PLA load trim the end of the filament before loading and don’t be afraid of pushing too hard when loading. Staff can’t load and unload spools. The color that is on is the color your print will be.
    • 38. MAKERBOT Digitizer
    • 39. MAKERBOT Digitizer
    • 40. MAKERBOT Digitizer 1. 2.Each pass takes 9 minutes 3.Combining multiple scans makes better prints 4.Works with MakerWare
    • 41. Make your survey: simple repeatable problem solving
    • 42. Fill out a survey, get a free print!
    • 43. White Clouds
    • 44. Makerbot Community
