3d print sizing

Printer speed depends on the size and the resolution of the file being printed. A smaller object will take a shorter period of time; so will an object printed at a lower resolution.

Both of these objects were printed on one of the STEAM Lab’s 3D printer. The smaller object (book spines with director Cheri Fiory’s name on them) took less than ten minutes to print. The larger object (a bust of Benjamin Franklin) took approximately four hours to print!
