Recent News

  • [2/25/14] 3D Design Contest
    • As you may have heard, SCETA recently acquired a 3D printer and thought that it would be fun to hold a contest for a 3D design.
    • The winner will have their design printed, and the others will have the opportunity to get their design printed at the SCETA member discounted price.
    • The requirements are as followed:
      • The design cannot exceed the print envelope: 300 mm x 200 mm x 178 mm (W x D x H). It is recommended to scale to half of the print envelope. (In essence, keep it pretty small!)
      • Send only .STL files. No solidworks or sketchup files please.
    • Please be aware that objects such as solid blocks will not be completely filled on the inside and will be more of a waffle-like fill.
    • Refer to this tutorial to help you prepare a design for the contest, and please send them to our secretary at sceta.secretary@gmail.com.
    • Have fun and good luck!
