Tinkercad and 3D Print

Don't forget to log your progress every day.  

Artifacts:  Pictures of your creations--uploaded to classroom in the ARTIFACTS assignment.  You should work on the project for the full 8 days.  The number of pieces created will depend on the intricacy of the pieces.  This project is not just about the print, it is about the design time.  It is expected that items that are larger prints, have more time and effort in them.   
  1. Our printer is a QIDI X-One2.
  2. Unless otherwise approved by Mrs. Pennington, you will have 5 hours of printing time.  Keep track of your printing time on your log. 
  3. The Qidi Slicer Software is loaded onto all computers.  It does not show up on the desktop, but will open when an .STL file is opened.  
  4. To get in the queue for printing, put your name, print name, color of print, card number, and approximate length of print on the notepad sitting on the printer cart.  
  5. Our printer prints one color at a time.  
  6. We will not print any items that were simply downloaded.  The max print for something downloaded and edited is 20 minutes. 
  7. We have 3 card readers and 3 SD cards on which to save your prints.  The SD cards are now numbered to make it easier to remember on which card your work is saved. 
  8. Any projects that you work on but don't print can still be turned in.  Go to the search tool at the bottom of the page.  Search for snipping tool.  Use the snipping tool to take a "picture" of your Tinkercad project.  Save the snip and upload to Classroom.
