3D Printing Tutorial #2 – Modeling a real object for printing using blender

Code Canyon


Sorry for sounding like a weirdo, but I was just coming off of a cold. Anyway, this is part 2 of 3D printing, start to finish. In this tutorial, I will show you how to model a real world object, an angle bracket for joining two pieces of 8020 extrusion at a 90 degree angle, how to put holes in your model, as if to produce holes that were drilled.

    Thank you for this tutorial! I am new to Blender and 3-d modeling but I am trying to learn so I can create custom pieces (like buckles) for costumes. This is the first tutorial I have watched after the Blender introduction videos and it was really easy for a newbie like me to follow.

    I don't know how old this video is but blender has the option to use metrics. Including the crazy American units.

    The 'blender units' issue is a bit of a turn off for me. I realize you can set metric actually, but when I tried creating mm sized parts, they were too tiny for the work space really.
    Question: How did you make sure your 'blender units' part was true to life scale when you printed it? Did you have to rescale it in another program before printing?

    Question: Did you print and build anything with the extrusions?  I like to see what they look like in plastic.

    Suggestion: when you refer to a key-press combo, put a little label overlay or bubble on the video stating the key press (e.g. "Ctrl-P"). I missed one or two of them when you said them quickly and I had to review a couple of times to get it.

    Thanks for the info, but if your going to make more videos, please buy a new mic! The clicking is very annoying and is taking away from your great tutorial. It seems to be in all of your blender videos!
