What It Is

The Spark Rings is the latest project here at the Spark Academic Innovation Hub. The Spark Rings, designed to surround a light fixture in the Spark building, are a visual representation of the concussive sound of the cannon shot fired after every Cougar football touchdown in celebration of achievement and success. The design of the Spark Rings is meant to be a visual reminder to celebrate our hard work and achievements.

The Process

First, the Spark Ring design was created on AutoDesk 3ds Max 2020. Then the design was sliced in Cura Ultimaker 4.1. Lastly, the Spark Rings were printed on a Wasp Delta 3mt 3D printer in Spark Design Studio 115.
