The theme for this issue is “3d Printing”
With the growing popularity of 3d printing and the lowering cost of both 3d printing services and 3d printers themselves, now is an exciting time to take a closer look at 3d printing and Blender. We are going to take a look at what it is, what it takes to print something in 3d, the services/materials available and some of the more popular 3d printers on the market.
What we are looking for:
- Do you have a 3d printer?
- What kind?
- How does it work with blender, what do you need to keep in mind during the design phase
- Do you use a 3d printing service?
- Which one, what has been your experience,
- what have you had 3d printed
- Designing for 3d print
- what do you need to keep in mind
- Using 3d printers for rapid prototyping and product design
