Abstract

The purpose of this project is to explore the relationship between science, art, and technology. Objects were 3-D printed using the printers in the Innovation Lab located in the Pfau Library. The objects were either found, made or altered using Thingiverse and Tinkercad. The objects were printed and were used to make a plaster mold. From the plaster mold they were made into ceramic pieces. The process took time and patience from waiting for the object to be printed to transforming into ceramics. Both subjects teach critical problem solving along with trial and error, but it’s safe to say that the outcome of this research was great.
