About Me

Name: Alicia Steele

I am a student at Michigan Technological university pursuing a Master of Science in Material Science and Engineering. I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Michigan Tech as well. My hobbies include, mounting biking, road biking, skiing, off roading, vehicle repair, knitting, and now 3D printing.

MY 5777 Projects

MOST Delta Improvements Under Consideration

  • LED lighting to make it easier to see extruder and detect printing problems early
  • Addition of side mounted 3D printed toolkit for Printer to hold exacto knife and wrenches
  • Design to minimize hardware and types of hardware required for construction

MOST Improvements that I would like to see

  • Calibration Program
  • Power Light
  • Better temperature control (finer Range)
  • Hardware Kill Switch that stops print, turns off extruder and drives extruder to home position overriding computer controls
