Thanks so much to Ammon Shepherd at the Scholars’ Lab in UVa’s Alderman Library for the wonderful introduction to the use of the 3D printers in the Makerspace, a wonderful place to explore and play that fortunately for me is open to the community.
I was excited to learn that printing a knitting loom to use for our Knitting Together baby hats for the UVa Hospital is a reasonable and acceptable project. Yesterday, I was able to start an experiment that will guide me as I continue to learn how to use the software and the printers in order to refine a prototype into my “perfect” loom.
A lot to learn and a long way to go, but I am excited to have reached that point in any project when a successful result is possible. Now I just need to figure out a schedule and get to work!
