November 2nd, 2018 – Current Project: 3d Printer Setup
In class currently, I have been working on the 3d printer and have been given full management of the 3d printer and the area that it resides in. On November 2nd I will be building the filament storage unit that we will be using to make sure the filament does not get saturated and stop working correctly. I will be heading most of the 3d printing meetings for the club as well. One of my plans is to fully refine the queue I have created to prevent backups.

November 8th, 2018 – Current Project: 3d Ornament Sale Planning
The filament storage container is finished!!! With that project done, I am starting the next right up…Planning for the sale of 3d Printed Christmas tree ornaments! We (Connor and I) are currently in the planning phases and are working on the 3d modeling of the ornaments! In other news, WLIO is coming in today to interview Mr. Suter and I about 3d printing!
- Refining the queue
- Create an order form for the ornaments
- Calculate prices for ornaments
The news people came and interviewed Kami, Mr. Suter, and I. The story ended up looking very good. You can see it on the Hometown Stations website.
November 23, 2018 – The Launch
The ornaments have launched!!! You can now purchase them from grit9.com/store or the store button on the menu!! I have also begun work on a secret personal project that qualifies as my passion project.
Future Projects Include
- Making another filament storage box for the Media Center and possibly one more for Grit9’s use
- Fully refining the queue
- Learning to fully 3d model in Blender (maybe)
