Follow up

We didn’t get a lot of time during this session because of an assembly, so we had to use our time are fast as we could. The students did a really nice job of using the time and many of them were able to make test prints. I encouraged them to get their layer perfect and if they had time they could print, and if they didn’t to print the following week.
