    2. 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. 3. OUR MAKERBOTS USE PLA PLA, or Polylactic Acid 1 SPOOL COSTS $43
    4. 4. 1 spool prints 392 chess pieces
    5. 5. This name tag took 11 minutes
    6. 6. This little guy took 45 ABOUT OUR MAKERBOT
    7. 7. Software Tinkercad: browser based FREE as in beer integrates with Thingiverse easy Software
    8. 8. Software Tinkercad: Utterly reliant on Internet connection Not precise Engineers will hate you Was almost killed off last year Software
    9. 9. 123D DESIGN ONLINE
    10. 10. Google SketchUp requires download Software

    19. 19. Practice dragging Geometric shapes onto the Workplane
    20. 20. Practice changing your view using your mouse and the onscreen tools.
    21. 21. Download for 3D Printing as STL
    22. 22. USING MAKERWARE Uses algorithm slices your digital file into very thin layers to prepare it for 3D printing.
    23. 23. SIMPLE TO USE 3 Buttons, 2 that actually do something helpful.
    24. 24. ADD brings your file into the program.
    25. 25. ADD brings your file into the program. Navigate to your file
    26. 26. ADD brings your file into the program. Navigate to your file Put the object on the platform
    27. 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. 28. ADD brings your file into the program. Navigate to your file Put the object on the platform The Magical Preview Button! IMPORTANT! Click MAKE to preview
    29. 29. ADD brings your file into the program. Navigate to your file Put the object on the platform ALL these presets can stay the same. These are up to you
    30. 30. ADD brings your file into the program. Navigate to your file Put the object on the platform The Magical Preview Button! Won’t effect prints in progress

    37. 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. 38. MAKERBOT Digitizer
    39. 39. MAKERBOT Digitizer
    40. 40. MAKERBOT Digitizer 1. 2.Each pass takes 9 minutes 3.Combining multiple scans makes better prints 4.Works with MakerWare
    41. 41. Make your survey: simple repeatable problem solving
    42. 42. Fill out a survey, get a free print!
