Before we begin Necessary TerminologyExtruder – This is a part of a 3D printer. This is the part that heats up to nearly melt the material so that the material can be worked with. A motor pushes the material through the hot part and out of a nozzle at the end. Filament – This is […]
Definition The 3D printers in build IT create 3D objects by depositing layers of material incrementally to build a 3D object. The thickness of each layer of deposited material is called the ‘layer height’.For Fused Deposition Modeling, or FDM, printers like the ones in build IT, one variable that affects the final quality of a […]

Design Lightbox v1.1 was constructed similarly to our first lightbox, with some minor differences. Left: new lightbox, Right: original lightboxThe new lightbox is also constructed from foamboard, posterboard, and a semi-translucent material. The foam board was joined together with hot-melt adhesive (also known as hot glue) rather than duct tape. To reduce waste, the windows […]
