3D Printing Extra Credit

The 3D printing extra credit is given for designing your company logo, robot part, or course modification in any CAD (Computer Aided Design) software of your choice and having it approved for printing by a 3D printing specialist. Your designs will then be printed on a first come first served basis (If EG cannot print your design due to time or material constraints you will not be penalized).

Mandatory 3D Printing for HIR

For all students working on the Housing & Innovation in Revit (HIR) project, there will be a mandatory 3D print required for commissioning. Groups must submit a .STL file of a single floor plan for printing by Benchmark B and receive approval from a ProtoLab TA before April 12, 2019 (Milestone 3). This is a requirement for commissioning, and failure to do so will result in point penalties on the project grade.

Specifications

Logos:

  • Maximum material usage does not exceed 15 grams total
  • Can be one or two colors
    • Two STL files are required for two color logos
  • Logos must be integrated with your project in some way:
    • Pin worn during final presentation
    • Attached to robot during commissioning video
      • Add provided Lego technic beam model to your part to allow it to be connected to your robot (in important downloads)
  • Must be original content
    • Cannot simply be text on a geometric shape
  • Must be .STL extension with correct scaling


Robot Parts:

  • Maximum 1 Color
    • Maximum print size (8 x 8 x 8 in) and material usage cannot exceed 300 grams
    • If a part exceeds the maximum size, it cannot be split into multiple pieces for printing
    • Object may not be touched after the robot has started to run
  • Original Design
    • Must be different from other groups’ submissions
    • Will be judged by 3D printing TA’s and Professors
  • Must have functional purposes and can help the robot in traversing through the course in some way; cannot be used for aesthetic purposes
  • Must be .STL extension with correct scaling


Course Modifications:

  • Maximum 1 Color
    • Can be printed in multiple parts; up to two Ultimaker buildplates (8.5 x 8.5 x 7.9 inches)
    • Must be used as one part
      • Different printed parts must be assembled together
      • Printed parts cannot be taped or glued together
    • Object may not be touched after the robot has started to run
  • Original Design
    • Must be different from other groups’ submissions
    • Will be judged by 3D printing TA’s and Professors
  • Must be .STL extension with scaling
    • Submit as .zip file if has multiple parts
