Karen and Wilson, two of our student clients, printed out these today, for the holidays. The first is a multi-color candy box with a screw lid, which was printed as separate pieces and assembled. The second is two ornaments for twin babies born this year, customized with their names and the year!
I recently had a class presentation where, thanks to your help, was able to borrow four 3D printed pieces to show the class! I borrowed a toy car, chain, T-Rex, and an armadillo. I passed three of the four around for the students to touch and play with and they loved it! Several mentioned in our post-presentation discussion that it actually helped the topic seem and feel real! While my team and I discussed how 3D printing can be used in the automotive industry, we were able to call out the different pieces. We were able to say things like “similar to the green chain, the car will be printed already assembled.” Students mentioned that moments like this allowed them to envision the whole 3d Printed vehicle process!
Thank you so much for all your help and for sharing your products with me! What a wonderful service provided to the students here!
The Computer Science freshman success community visited the space to see what they might be interested in making. It was helpful to have lots of options when it comes to creating printed objects (coding from scratch, using building block programs, borrowing designs from people around the world). This combine with the virtual reality equipment makes for a great resource for UMB students.
Professor Wei Ding, Yong Zhuang, and I want to thank you again for your efforts in planning and hosting educational sessions on 3D printing and VR for the students attending the Computer Science day at UMass Boston as part of the 2017 Tech Savvy Conference this summer. The Boston Area Girls STEM Collaborative emailed our group with very positive feedback that they received on the program from the girls who attended, and events like those you held at the MakerSpace were a big part of that positive experience. The program wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of the volunteers, and we’re really happy we could have you among them this year — you were receptive to ideas and very responsive the whole time we worked together. And you did a great job modeling and printing the favors as well!
So again, we really appreciate all the planning and time that went into making that a memorable experience for the girls that attended the conference. It was a pleasure working with you!
All the Best,
The model is perfect! Exactly what we were hoping for. Looks amazing! Thank you so much for your efforts. It’s been a huge help.
