Hi everybody,

my name is Fabian and i´m from Germany.

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.

Hi Fabian,

Welcome to Shapeways. The easiest software to start out may be Google SketchUp and Autodesk's 123D. Both are free and 'relatively' easy to learn.

Good luck

Welcome to Shapeways, Fabian Smile

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"
