Brainstorming

So far, a general prototype for a post about a 3d printed object consists of a photo and a description, often linking to our incorporating the elements of the pages on Thingiverse.

This may include details such as:

  • The printer that constructed it
  • The type of material/filament used
  • Customizations
  • The file used to generate the print.
  • Source files used to make the printable part, such as design files for use with 3D modeling software.
