Sigma Lab Firsts


Here are the very first parts we ever printed in our brand new lab on our brand new MakerBot Replicator 2.

I think Dorsey and Carter were the first people to add a knob to a potentiometer.  They were also the first to use white LEDs and the first to add little rubber feet to the bottom of their project.  It’s the little things.

Risa and Margaret are always figuring out new things to do in the Sigma Lab.  They were the first to use NinjaFlex flexible 3D printing filament.  Awesome.

Chris and Austin and the rest of the BAE (BACON Aerospace Engineering) team 3D printed an airplane!

These two knucleheads, Max and Sam, can’t help but come up with new ways to push the Sigma Lab.  Here, we see four firsts: 1) the plotting class Max wrote in Processing, 2) an Arduino connected to a remote control via Bluetooth, 3) a 12 V vacuum pump connected to a relay via Arduino, and 4) a record number of Hawaiian shirts.
