moving forward

Today the 3D printing group continued with our plastic holding device. Last class we were able to cut out two circles to attach to a lazy suzanne, but we then encountered the problem of how to keep the spools of plastic contained in the spool form. We decided to put a peg in the middle to keep the circular shape. This involved drilling a hole through the middle and using the scroll saw to cut out a circle with a diameter of 3.5 inches. We were successful in our attempts and hope to have the plastic holding device mounted and working in the very near future. Pictured above is Kelley cutting out the circle on the scroll saw.
