So You Bought a 3D Printer: Now What? 3D printers are all the rage these days. But they become really big, expensive paperweights unless you have a purpose and a plan for using them, as well as the willingness to experiment in order to get consistent quality. This session will demonstrate the 3D modeling-to-printing workflow and how to overcome common problems that occur. We'll begin by building a 3D model using Sculptris and Make Human, both free 3D modeling programs. We'll then convert the model into STL format, use open source ReplicatorG software to generate the layers (g-code) for printing, then print it out. Along the way, we'll discuss ways to use 3D modeling and printing to STEAM up your regular curricula.
