CSALT2 has added a couple of new 3D hardware options to the resources in the Faculty Innovation and Learning Lab (FILL) on the first floor of the University Library for interested faculty to explore.
The da Vinci Mini 3D Printer
A 3D printer allows a user to construct a three-dimensional solid object from a digital file. The object can be anything from a water molecule to a sculpture. The technology heats plastic fiber and then “prints” the design by applying layer after layer to build the product.
Watch a review of some 3D printed student projects made by Brandeis University students. Possibilities are endless!
Scribbler 3D Pen
The 3D pen replaces ink with plastic which melts at high temperatures. Use the pen to draw in the air or on a surface to create 3D objects. The pen can also be used as a type of “welding tool” on objects made using the larger 3D printer to attach multiple pieces. Watch the 3D pen in action
Anyone interested in either of these technologies is encouraged to contact the CSALT2 Instructional Design team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 401-254-3187.
