Week four consisted of digitizing and 3D printing my shoulders up, and two informative talks from the professor of Making Things course and 3D lab worker Ryan. I enjoyed 3D printing my head because I learned how to use the digitizer, tweak the file for printing, and eventually print the file. Seeing how a 3D print goes from nothing to the final product was very educational. Below is a picture of my 3D print.
My print turned out great. The biggest struggle was trying to get the digitizer to stay stable and achieve a quality 3D image. After working towards a good digital image, the rest of the process was a breeze. I put my head on a rectangle on tinkercad, added my initials on my back and printed myself out!
