3D Printing
TLC
3D Printing
3D printing is an additive manufacturing process, which creates a three dimensional object from a digital file by placing layer upon layer of plastic, building up from the base. To get started, you will need a .stl file. You can find .stl files for 3D models on Thingiverse.com or create them using free programs like TinkerCAD, Blender and SketchUp. Once you have a file chosen or created, give us a call at 609-463-6341 or stop in to schedule an appointment.
The cost of printing is $1.00 and an additional 5 cents per gram, but you can say the magic phrase, “Steam Engine” and save $1.00 off your print.

Pat Sutton has keenly studied the natural world for over 30 years (as the naturalist at the Cape May Point State Park in the 1970s and 1980s and for 21 years, until 2007, as the naturalist and program director at the Cape May Bird Observatory). Pat has an undergraduate degree in Literature and a Masters Degree in Environmental Education. She and her husband (Clay Sutton) wrote the landmark book, Birds and Birding at Cape May (2006), the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the Cape May area that they so love. Other books by Pat and Clay include How to Spot Butterflies (1999), How to Spot Hawks & Eagles (1996), and How to Spot an Owl (1994). Today Pat is a free-lance writer, naturalist, educator, lecturer, tour leader, and wildlife habitat / conservation gardening champion. Her own wildlife garden is a teaching garden included on many tours and featured in programs and workshops she teaches.
