    Hi, everyone.

    I've been fascinated by 3D printing since the first time I ever heard of it, and I just signed up on Shapeways yesterday.

    Don't know much about 3D design but I hope to learn to use Blender well enough to draw and print something out.

    See you!

    Welcome. We've had several members start up with little 3D knowledge, and step in with Blender and be able to make wonderful designs. Blender does take patience, but from what I've seen it can make some wonderful designs (Wish I had the patience :p). So keep up with it, and there are plenty of helpful individuals here to help you along the way.

    You can start to get a feel for Shapeways, and get your 1st 3d model just by sketching it on paper. :)
