I downloaded the netfabb software, but when I try to export it I do not see the correct format/ file to re download the corrected dimensions to the 2D to 3D creator

If you plot design-time versus profit in any of the plastics it'll only make you cry!

I design stuff for my hobbies, and there's no way ANY of them will ever pay me back at the commercial hourly rate for my time. Instead, I assume I'm investing the time for my hobbies, and if sales profits cover the cost of my own purchased prints then I'm a winner...

My sentiment exactly. Hundreds of hours spent fixing the holes in a model, and net $13 of markup from that model over a period of the last 3 years. I'm not in this "for the money". The drawing itself is relaxation for me. However, I'm also not going to turn down any donations that any patron would like to contribute.. <grin>

Now, on the other side, I've had a couple of models that took 20 minutes to build and netted me over $100 of markup. It's not an even tradeoff.. I have yet to break $1.50 average markup per item sold.

But I'm not going to stop drawing.

Thanks for chiming in rithmikansur. So how does it work? TGAW downloads and prints the file, her kids color it, then she scans it and uploads it. Next, how does it go from upload to product order? Does it do it automatically? Or does the image show up in your inbox and you have to do a whole new model upload?

Thanks if you don't mind answering.
