Professor helps Indiana State Museum with 3D printing

This summer, Indianapolis Associate Professor of Design Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology, Jamie Hamilton, completed an externship at Online Resources in Lebanon, Indiana. During his time there, he worked with 3D scanning technology, creating computer-aided design files of scanned parts.
 
During the externship, the Indiana State Museum (ISM) was in need of help with some of the items they scanned in and wanted to print for display. 
“One item was multiple pieces for a clay pot that was found in southern Indiana,” said Jason Roth, Hamilton’s colleague and associate professor/program chair. “Another was a rock that was in the shape of a face found in Indiana, and the third was a house from colonial times in Indiana.”
