Overview week 1+2 objectives
The first week mainly included orientating ourselves on the project ahead and thus learning everything we can about the XXL Ultimaker. We learned a lot and decided upon the main goal of our project:
To combine multiple 3D printers and let them work as one that can be used by consumers without the use of an expert.
From here we decided upon the two objectives:
Designing a straightforward implementation for an overlap technique with an accesebel design.
This resulted in the start of three projects:
Inner change A project about the post programming program we made to improve the overlap technique and the ease of the printing experience.
Exterior design Everything to improve the appearance of the Ultimaker to create a more approachable and user friendly product.
Real world application Using the XXL Ultimaker to contribute to scientific projects.
Here you can find the links to the projects we started this period. For each overview we will update this list so you can follow our progress through out the different projects.
