Gpu Backplate Painting
May 4, 2017 2016-2017,Student Work 18mehlou

Lacrosse Stick
May 4, 2017 2016-2017,Student Work Student Demo

This is the 3D printed version of my lacrosse stick. Obviously the height of the final product will be much longer (10.5 times longer specifically) but to 3D print that much would simply be a waste of time. However, the width, length, and shape of the 3D printed product will be the exact same as
