dfab: remarkable thing #9

This class made me realize that anything you envision in your mind can be fabricated. Of course, there are limitations and it is not as easy as one may think. Coming into the class, I thought 3D printing would be as easy as pushing a button, however that is clearly not the case. TinkerCAD proved the most useful to me because it could print out unique parts for my gears for my degree project, and it was extremely simple to use. I'm eager to learn more about laser cutting, as it quickly outputs desired imagery. Below you can find some TinkerCAD sketches of 3D letters of the whole alphabet. I saved out each letter in Illustrator as svgs, and then uploaded them into TinkerCAD.
