I am new to 3d modelling and Shapeways.
My goal is to create 3D modeltrains, that are detailed.
I want to work together with other members and i want share the results.
But first i have to learn more about 3D designing and maybe find partners.
You can definitely use Sketchup to make trains like that, see here for an 18 page thread of Sketchup-modeled train awesomeness, btw, that forum is excellent for Sketchup help.If you're new to 3D printing, learn the secrets from a professional. Get my book "3D Printing with SketchUp"
