My friend and fellow GSLIS alum Jeff Ginger designed and 3D-printed this Alot for me. I’m so happy to have a new desk buddy! It will also be handy to use as an exemplar when talking about what 3D-printed objects look like.
- Designed in Blender, open-source 3D modeling software
- Refined in Netfabb Studio Basic
- Printed with an UP! 3D printer
