Looking around in Blender 2.49
was wondering if the things called metas are printable?

Can one use the "Metaball" form a shape and have it be used in 3D printing ?

the shapes listed under Meta

Balls
tube
plane

Indeed they are. Smile
you`ll just need to conver them into a mesh by pressing "alt+c"
there are some settings for them in editing panel.

Thanks for the reply

and the key shortcut

Like blender ..............it is a little bit over for someone just starting out in modeling with computers.

No problem.

Blender was my first contact to cg-graphics, back then I was so exited to find a Free 3D-modelling software I didn´t even think of searching tutorials or guides. I just banged the keyboard trying to find different cool key combinations to do stuff ! Laughing
It took me about 2 weeks learn to build something vaguely regognisable. then I discovered that there are tutorials and stuff on the net Rolling Eyes from wich I would have learned all and more during those 2 weeks in just few hours... I´ve grown a "bit" more patient now Very Happy


anways here´s some links for blender:
