Hello everyone! Welcome to my 3D printing blog, Printeraction. My name is Alex Crease. For starters, this space is my playground. I’m one of four students who run the 3D printing space at Olin College of Engineering, where any and all students can learn to use our printers. With four MakerBot Replicator 2s, two Replicator 2Xs, a Kinect, a Filastruder, and loads of interesting filament, the space is used as both a rapid prototyping resource for students and a fun place to experiment, ideate, and innovate. As a leader of the space, I am always looking for new ways to use the 3D printers and share my ideas with the Olin community and the maker community as a whole.
I’ve started this blog as an experiment. I want to share my thoughts on expanding the definition and mindset of 3D printing through experimentation. Although I don’t know what this will become in the far future, in the near future I will be using this blog to share my research in developing a method of printing that I would like to call “co-processing”. This method will be introduced and developed over the next few weeks, and if you are interested in what I do feel free to contact me!
Here we go,
