RMU Faculty Research Conference

I had a great time this morning manning a poster about the CalcPlot3D applet, some of the models that I have made this semester and am using in class, and our initial research on student visual understanding of multivariable calculus concepts … Continue reading

A 3D printed knot

Here are two photos of the 3D model of the parametric surface: x(u,v)  = cos(u)*cos(v)+3cos(u)*(1.5+sin(u*5/3)/2) y(u,v) = sin(u)*cos(v)+3sin(u)*(1.5+sin(u*5/3)/2) z(u,v) = sin(v)+2cos(5u/3)

3D model finished!

My first attempt at a 3D printed model was finished today.   Next time I’ll refine the grid so that the surface isn’t so faceted, but I’m happy with the result.  I can’t wait to create more.

3D Model Take 2

Since the printer head broke during my first attempt at printing a 3D model, I took the opportunity to adjust my graph to something more interesting. I showed my previous attempt to a few colleagues and students.  One former student … Continue reading

3D model

My first attempt at printing a 3D surface from a CalcPlot3D generated file ended prematurely due to a broken printer head. But this gives me the chance to make adjustments to the surface for an even more interesting example.
