September 9, 2019 - 3D Printed Frankenstein for English Project

Mr. David Marinez's '04 British Literature class finished reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein in the spring of 2019. In order to step into the role of Victor Frankenstein to gain greater insight into the wonders of technological progress as well as the dangers of a world without ethics, he asked his students to design their own "creation" using TinkerCAD, a browser-based, computer-assisted drawing program.
Through the program's features, students were able to create 3D models of their human-like creation based on the descriptions from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and export the files to Mr. Martinez for 3D printing using the TILE Lab's Maker Bot Replicator+. He then compiled some of the videos and images and asked his students to create during the design process for the 3D Printing & Mary Shelley's Frankenstein project and also attached images of some of the 3D artifacts printed so far.

Mr. Martinez shared, "I'm pretty impressed with what my students have been able to accomplish and proud of their results. Mrs. Nahigian and I also created a time-lapse video of one of the 3D models printing on the MakerBot Replicator+."
