Week 10 Mar. 9 | 3D models Update
Since I was away in Miami for spring break, I emailed my 3D model to Marston Science Library. The final dimensions are around 4" in length and 0.8" width. I printed out two copies for $3.30
I was surprised to see that there was a based to my model. It was not like that in the .STL file, but I am assuming that adding one was the only way the printer could print it. It was fairly easy to snap off. In Maya, I made sure to smooth my mesh before saving the .STL file, but my print still ended up looking a little more blocky that I intended. Overall, I am still pleased with the outcome. Next: to assemble and paint!
