    One of the teachers at school (PRM) decided to purchase a 3D printer for his classroom. His kids make everything with it! It's amazing!

      I don’t understand how this works (been under a rock I guess). How does he know what size (dimensions?) to use/make? I heard that somebody can print a plastic piece and fix their vacuum, but how do they know what are the exact measurements (dimensions?)? There is a whole new language to learn for this 3D printing.

        I didn't get it at first either. I thought it was cool, but super expensive. now they can be bought for $200 and everyone can buy them. You can even use them in a library.

        Here is a fun example of putting it together (yes you have to assemble it) and the gist of it.

          Oh, GREAT! Now I reeeeeeeealy want one! There’s a whole new language to learn I guess, like embroidery digitizing and paper cutting files. Thank you for enabling me, lol!

        That's a cool template for sure. Idk how those 3D printers work either. I always equate the word printer with paper in my head. What are the templates made out of? Cardboard or stiff paper or something else? And why are they called 3D? It just looks flat to me.

        Do you think a 3-D printer could make some of these? I think that would be awesome!

          The ALLIPOPS are made of stainless steel, 3D printers use plastic, so while it probably could make the rings, they probably wouldn't hold up to the heat of your iron, and that would not only ruin your templates, but your fabric and iron also.

        o.k. Too bad about the melting. I never thought about that.

          Those are cool. Never heard of them. Thanks. Actually they are decently priced giving what goes into making them, and the material, but more than that... the utility. Some larger sized would be nice.
      Working...
