Using a 3D printer for fabrication has become increasingly popular and allows artists and makers to create complex and intricate shapes that would be difficult to create by hand. Since beginning to offer Digital Fabrication and Foundry at The Crucible, our students have created their own 3D printed sneakers, custom trophies, desperately needed very specific tools and parts, bouquets of roses, geometric bowls, and more.
We’re about to wrap on our latest ten-week session of Digital Fabrication and Foundry. During class, students learned to build 3D models and print multiple test pieces before committing to their final design, which they cast into metal in our Foundry last week. Tonight, they will see the final product and begin the clean-up process.
Get inspired by following the 5-step how-to below—knowledge you can put to use in Digital Fabrication and Foundry starting January 16. This last class was jam-packed. Don’t wait to sign up this round, there are only four spots left!
