3D Printing a Bridge

  

In Wilbur Lab here on campus there is an array of 3D printers open for students to use. As long as they are used for academic purposes they are free to use. However, even if you just want to use it for fun then all you have to do is pay for the plastic used, which is pretty cheap. A friend of mine printed quite a large object and he said it was only $2 and change. I’m currently printing our bridge from Steel Bridge club. We thought it would be a fun idea to send all of our sponsors this year a tiny 3D-printed model of the bridge. Hopefully it prints without a hitch. I’ve never used a printer like this before so it’ll be interesting to see if I didn’t mess it up. Check in tomorrow for the result!!!
