3D Printing

  • Rock Salt

    This project was submitted for the Spring 2019 3D Printing and Design Competition. Participants were asked to respond to the following prompt: “We want to know how you created your project, what inspired you, what you learned along the way, and where it might lead you. In short we want you to tell us the story behind the project and reflect on the process.” Response: This product was a part of our inorganic chemistry course. Using 3D printing we were able to compose the structure of rock salt (NaCl) something that most people are familiar with. This project allowed for the understanding and break down of the rock salt structure…

  • Nickel Arsenide

    This project was submitted for the Spring 2019 3D Printing and Design Competition. Participants were asked to respond to the following prompt: “We want to know how you created your project, what inspired you, what you learned along the way, and where it might lead you. In short we want you to tell us the story behind the project and reflect on the process.” Response: In a display case, on the second floor of the Clement Chemistry Building at Trinity College, are a number of hand-made models of ionic compounds. Ionic compounds form crystals, which consist of many alternating positive and negative ions bonded together in a matrix. These original…

  • Bed Frame Tray

    This project was submitted for the Spring 2019 3D Printing and Design Competition. Participants were asked to respond to the following prompt: “We want to know how you created your project, what inspired you, what you learned along the way, and where it might lead you. In short we want you to tell us the story behind the project and reflect on the process.” Response: What started as an in-class assignment made way for a unique experience for our group, heightening our interest in 3D Design more than we had ever previously anticipated. The three of us began this 3D Printing journey with no prior knowledge in the field, so…

  • Bathroom Phone Holder

    This project was submitted for the Spring 2019 3D Printing and Design Competition. Participants were asked to respond to the following prompt: “We want to know how you created your project, what inspired you, what you learned along the way, and where it might lead you. In short we want you to tell us the story behind the project and reflect on the process.” Response: With a lot of determination and hard work our bathroom phone holder was created. My group and I were inspired to create this phone holder because we realized when we go to the bathroom in a public place we do not have a clean, easy…

  • Crystals

    This project was submitted for the Spring 2019 3D Printing and Design Competition. Participants were asked to respond to the following prompt: “We want to know how you created your project, what inspired you, what you learned along the way, and where it might lead you. In short we want you to tell us the story behind the project and reflect on the process.” Response: This project is a model of a crystal based on a copper plate print I made in my Printmaking Workshop. That print was also influenced by my Studio Arts thesis which is a collection of paintings based on and including crystals. They focus on the…
