Getting Started with 3D Modelling Software Part 2

Getting Started with 3D Modelling Software Part 2

Last week I gave you an overview of the most widely used 3D modelling software. Now, it is time to present my own first 3D models. I have only recently begun diving into 3D design, so my models are fairly simple. You can build them, using the default shapes provided in SketchUp Make and Blender.

Getting Started with 3D Modelling Software Part 1

It’s been a while since I completed my first 3D print project. Since then, I’ve printed many other great models, worked with several 3D printers and experimented with different filament materials (we have something very special coming out soon). So it’s time to take another step out of my box and start creating my own 3D printable designs.

However, we are yet to reach the point when you just choose a cool 3D model, tell your 3D printer to make it, sit back and relax. Here are some things I discovered which might help you.

The “Touching the Prado” exhibition has demonstrated yet another way that 3d printing in arts and culture can improve the world on a deeply moving human level. In order to give blind and visually impaired people a realistic sense of the paintings, 3D printing in the Prado has reproduced five of their most famous paintings.
