Cross-Posted on my personal blog. UVA’s Slavic Librarian, Kathleen Thompson, and Slavic Lecturer, Jill Martiniuk, conclude their two-part evaluation of the 3D printing assignment for Yuri Urbanovich’s ‘Understanding Russia’ course. Considering both student and professor feedback, Kathleen and Jill offer suggestions to continue and improve this interactive assignment for future courses: Since this project was an experiment, some….

Cross-posted on my personal blog. In a previous post, UVA’s Slavic Librarian, Kathleen Thompson, and Slavic Lecturer, Jill Martiniuk, outlined the early stages of a 3D printing assignment for Yuri Urbanovich’s ‘Understanding Russia: Symbols, Myths, and Archetypes of Identity’ course. Kathleen and Jill now describe the unexpected obstacles and opportunities of this assignment in a two part blog….

We had a need to take the temperature of an environment over a period of time, and record those temperatures for later analysis. There are a number of options for recording sensor data. If connected to a computer, the data can be saved by reading the serial output and storing that in a file. If…. Continue reading “Saving Arduino Sensor Data”.
Cross-posted on my personal blog. Anthropology Ph.D. Candidate Sue Ann McCarty frequently visits the Makerspace to print archaeological artifacts. Over multiple conversations, we’ve discovered that we share a similar passion for 3D modeling and printing in the classroom. Sue Ann recently applied her research to a course she taught at James Madison University, and I….

Cross-posted on my personal blog. During the first week of the spring semester, the Makerspace was a flurry of activity, our Ultimaker 2 printing feverishly throughout the day. Groups of students came in and out, selecting and slicing models, checking on their 3D prints, and assembling different components. This week marked the beginning of a….

This week at the SLab Makerspace, we’ve been experimenting with faster 3D printing at lowering resolutions with larger extruder nozzles. The diameter of the standard Ultimaker 2 nozzle/block assembly is 0.4mm. When we recently installed Anders Olsson’s upgraded heater block (after the stock thermocouple end came off inside of our OEM heater block), we gained the ability to….

Cross-posted on my personal blog. A few weeks ago, R. Benjamin Gorham, a Ph.D. candidate in Classical Art & Archaeology at the University of Virginia, visited the Makerspace for a consultation on photogrammetry and 3D printing. Ben has been using GIS, drones, and photogrammetry during his summer excavations in Morgantina, Sicily and wanted to experiment…. Continue reading “Classical Archaeology and the Makerspace”.
Earlier this fall semester, I ventured to test out the Makerspace’s 3D printer by reproducing a 3D version of Kepler’s platonic solid model. This model was a historical object that I desired to examine in physical form while taking a class on the Scientific Revolution. I desired to study the artifact in such a way….
