3-D Printing at the Scholars’ Lab

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!
