3D Printing – Design to Build! Thank you, Autodesk!

3D Printing – Design to Build! Thank you, Autodesk!

Forget everything I said 2 posts ago about Blender. We are rocking and rolling with the 123D Design app on the iPad.

Because you wanted to see all 365 iPad drawings together in one gallery…and so did I. Here they are exactly as published.

You’ll […]

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

As always, this week – conference week – has been a busy week! I took some time yesterday to install and calibrate our new interactive whiteboard, which is a tool that works with the projector, computer, and document camera to make our projection screen behave like a SmartBoard. We can thank IPEVO and their Wishpool […]
