PLA with Hannah Cameron
In this episode, Anna talks to maker and engineer Hannah Cameron about PLA. One of the most commonly-used plastics for 3D printing, PLA is naturally-sourced, biodegradable and can come in a whole host of groovy colours. Here, Hannah regales us with tales of making and playing with 3D printing PLA - the good, the bad, and the giant 3D printed rainbow which got her a job.
Hannah has always been a designer-maker; having trained as a landscape architect, she worked in an architecture practice for 3 years before becoming a 3D printer fanatic. As a science communicator, she has given talks at science festivals and conferences around the UK about 3D printing and is now an engineer for Eagle Labs, where she leads companies through the development of their ideas and rapid prototypes.
