Homework 8: 3D printing instructions
Due: Sunday, Dec. 6, 11:59pm by email
If you would like your chess piece 3D printed, please follow the instructions below carefully. Note that this is optional and not for any credit, but if you're interested I really encourage it!
We can probably do roughly 10 pieces depending on how schedules line up with the 3D printer availability. If there is more interest than that, I'll go on a first-email, first-severed basis.
I would recommend the lab machines if you have trouble with your machine. Open your .stl file in Cura and make sure it is visible with no errors. You should see something like this:
You might have to zoom in a bit, but it doesn't matter how small or big it is, the 3D printing software in the Machine Shop will scale it such that it takes a reasonable amount of time to print.
Instead of emailing me a list of times you're available, you should make an appointment directly on the Machine Shop calendar:
Click on the "Schedule" tab and add your name to an empty slot, and indicate that it is for "3D printing for CSC 240". A new schedule for each week is released on Friday around noon. Still make sure to email me your .stl file.
