SO, last Saturday, I went to the Whee Make It office in Virginia Beach and picked up a Solidoodle 3 3D printer. I had this idea in my head that I would just download a whole bunch of awesome things from thingiverse, set it to print & finish off the week with a ton of really awesome stuff, and that… sort of happened. As it turns out, 3D printing is a skill that takes some practice, some trial and error and a LOT of patience.
But, after a few false starts (which you can see in the video here) I finally printed some really cool stuff.
You can, again, see almost everything I printed in that video, but two of my favorites are here, a Deathly Hallows pendant that spins in the center, and a chubby little ampersand to sit on my bookshelf.
Whee Make It will be opening up both printer rentals & 3D printing classes after the new year, so check out their website & also you can visit their facebook page for updates as well. I will definitely be renting from them again in the future in addition to taking a class or two, so maybe I’ll see you there!
