  2. Commit to a project. You will be assigned a new block to print.
  3. Print your given block within 24 hours. You may print in whatever color or material you like, so long as the part comes out nicely. Feel free to inscribe your initials on the back (or other non-visible face)!
  4. Verify your printed block by uploading a photo of your printed block along with its length, width, and height measurements.

About We the Builders

We the Builders was created as part of the ArtBytes Hackathon at the Walters Art Museum. Our team set out to recreate a full 1:1 scale replica of a prominent work of Baltimore public art using 3D printing. We didn't have enough printers to do it all ourselves, so we built this crowdsourcing platform!

The We the Builders Team is:

Special thanks to Direct Dimensions for their amazing 3D scanning skills.

Special thanks to Tinkerine Studio for sponsoring the George Washington Bust project to allow us to reimburse some shipping costs!
