Star Wars fans: Get one-of-a-kind 3-D gear at 605 Made

May 4, 2018

The futuristic technique of 3-D printing seems a perfect fit for Star Wars objects.

And May 4 certainly is an ideal day to sell them.

That’s Star Wars Day. It’s also the 605 Made Spring Market, which will feature 3-D printing and work designed and created by Southeast Technical Institute students.

Johnnie Schroeder’s SolidWorks class of first- and second-year students will demonstrate the technology and sell their work, which includes X-wings, TIE fighters, TIE defenders, star destroyers and a Lambda-class shuttle.

“This is a great opportunity for both my students and Southeast Tech to show the community what we do,” he said.

Other items for sale will include a gear cube, model cars and an incense holder.

The money raised will be used for the students to travel in September to the International Manufacturers Trade Show in Chicago, where they will see the latest in manufacturing technology.

The 605 Made Market runs from 5 to 9 p.m. downtown at The First National Bank in Sioux Falls, which also sponsors the event.
