“I mean something like that, but I want it to be capable of printing out the parts necessary to assemble another one.”

In observing others work I found it interesting how many ideas and questions about my own idea came to me and how others ¬†were interested in making similar objects. Before entering this class I had no idea how a 3d printer was made or to what extent it could perform what it does. It was very helpful to see videos of how the 3d printer works and each step and layers it goes threw. The different types of resolutions types such as low,medium, and high resolutions were cool to see how different your design can look even though it is printing the same object , but just at different speeds. Certain objects need a different resolution type depending on what you want the final result to look like. I didn’t realize how long it takes to print something out until watching these videos. Making certain tools to help you with something else you are using is very useful such as the man who made the clip for his camera.
