SOLIDWORKS software and 3D printers are used all around the world to solve complex technical problems across a wide range of disciplines, but they can also be used by everyday people to create their own innovative solutions to challenges they face. In my own case, I had the problem of people wanting to take pictures through my telescopes during public events — a problem I solved using the technology that is all around me here at GSC. Check out the video below to see how it went!
1/10/2019 Update: Until recently, we used an older 3D printing technology at GSC, but going forward we are using MarkForged “next generation” printers that make stronger parts, faster. Rather than re-shoot the video, I’ll just say that I’m not having to wait overnight for my prints to finish with the MarkForged 🙂
