Desktop 3D printing arrived in the center of a perfect storm of accessible open hardware, software and 3D scanning, a virtuous circle that offered pathways and entry points into a previously inaccessible and expensive process. At the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) the introduction of low cost, 3D printing on campus opened the floodgates to a sea change in making for the campus community. This presentation will discuss the challenges of integrating digital fabrication workflows into the SAIC curriculum and talk about lessons learned over the last 6 years of desktop 3D printing, sharing creative outcomes, curricula experiments and current projects.
