Assignment 5: 3D Printing and Media

Open the .STL of your 3D scan in Tinkercad and incorporate it into a larger design. You can “turn in” the assignment by either printing it, taking a photo of the printout and putting it on the class blog, or by posting a screen shot of the object in Tinkercad to the class blog (if you run out of time or can’t get it to print, which happens sometimes).

In that post, also share your thoughts on specific ideas for how 3D printing can play a role in communications, storytelling and public education in your future career. My example (which you can’t use): local newspapers could print and sell 3D models of local sports stars. Or see Kean Clifford’s project from my Next News Startup class called Prey:
