3D Printing- easy or hard?[ 2 vote(s) ]
1.Yes 2 / 100%
2.No 0 / 0%

I have never had any experience in programming or the like. I have many ideas of things I would like to 3D print. How do I begin? What steps do I have to go through to get to actually printing out a 3D object that originated in my imagination?

3D printing is easy! Compared to CNC it is so easy that I don't even use my own CNC equipment cuz I'd rather just upload it and wait for it in the mail. NO THINKING! HAHAHA!! Laughing

If you're new, try Sketchup and see how you like it. It's free! Very Happy

There are bajillions of videos on how to use it including these official training videos.

Also there are hundreds of thousands of free models you can download and mess around with!

Oh, and you'll keep seeing Google in connection with Sketchup, that's cuz Google recently sold Sketchup to Trimble.






It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.
