Winning the state level contest she began working on producing a refined product and additional information for her "pitch". After teaching herself TinkerCAD she digitized her drawings and began the long process of converting her drawing to a printable 3D model.
After a month of working on the statue with her teachers and district personnel iTechNation was contacted to see if we could help print the model. We went to work trying to print the model. After a 24 hour period of trying to get the Makerbot to print we were stumped. We put a call out to Techno-Chaos and Advanced Graphics. Both companies are known for their expertise in the maker movement and graphic modeling and design. With their assistance the drawing issues were corrected and her model was printed.
This is a case of how business partnerships and community outreach can help an individual out. Teachers and administrators were unable to solve the issues in the appropriate amount of time and through connections fostered here at iTechNation La'Jasha was able to compete at the national level. She placed in the top ten at the BPA National Leadership Conference. An achievement that isn't to bad for someone who had never drawn a 3D model before.
Thank you Techno-Chaos and Advanced Graphics we couldn't have done it without you!
