Calendar

All Homework is due by submission of your web link to Canvas before NOON of the next class day (two hours before class begins). All homework will be handed in by submitting sections to Portfolios or Group blog posts. Points for each assignment are listed below. Asterisks indicate points earned from group work.

Keep in mind that 3D prints can take a long time to finish, and that your first print won’t always work out. Leave enough time to reprint before the deadline if needed; it is your responsibility to make sure that your print job completes on time.

Please remember to check the JMU 3SPACE calendar to make sure that your 3D prints will finish before the next scheduled 3SPACE class or event. Prints that overlap scheduled classes and events will be canceled. Notice that on Tuesdays there is a class in 3SPACE right after ours, but on Thursdays the room is generally free for long prints.

Keep all 3D prints and failures; you’ll need them for the final exam showcase!
