We welcome the newest addition to our room: a 3-D printer.
So far it has printed mainly pre-constructed files including a cell phone case with operating gears on the back and various small objects.
The most impressive task was when a student tipped her monitor over and it fell on a keyboard, breaking its adjustable foot. I was able to draw a replacement foot in sketch up, export the file, convert it to a printer file and print the foot. Actual printing took about six minutes. And the best part is it snapped into the keyboard and has been used repeatedly for the past week.
