__New Tutorial every Friday! __
How to set up a simple model for 3d printing. Again, I have used http://www.shapeways.com/ twice now and have gotten some really great results. I recommend them.
Remember to keep in mind:
1. Real world sizes.
2. The volume of your mesh
3. Can your mesh stand up on its own
4. Is your mesh uniform

    complexity it's not a cost factor!

    you pay more for the time than you do the plastic. plastic is normally like 10$ a pound

    As someone who is just getting started with 3D printing I feel like this tutorial is NOT for beginners to blender… You start clicking all over the place and I have no idea how your doing half the stuff you do and I even try to pause… If its hotkeys you are typing please put them on this tutorial I LOVE HOTKEYS and that would be super benificial.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has become very consumer friendly in 3 years. Filament is super cheap now around $22.00 for a 1Kg roll (I printed for 4 days straight, my printer keeps track of time printed and amount of filament used). Also 3D printers are very cheap now days, you can get one for under $300 or create your own for much less.

    this is the wrong way to work in blender for 3d printing.

    I thought 3D printers had an option for infill. I'm confused on this.

  15. Matt Ballam
    December 1, 2017 at 14:10

    Why does anyone bother with the thickness? Don't 3D printers work out how to print solid objects by just adding less infill material?

    The m3d pro you don't have to do uniform. It will print out everything in the plain

    Blender is not supposed to be used for engineering modelling. FreeCAD is like million times better for these purposes.

    Hey what if I changed the unit on the scene tab would that affect the print out for the model's size?

    I thought leaving a hole was not good for 3d printing? ??

    Check to see if your library has a 3d printer! My local library has one where you pay 38 cents per gram for the plastic.

    I've seen things printed that were clearly not uniform. Is this something that you still need to do?

    I have a problem. When I try to put my model through Cura, it doesn't slice. I try printing it, but all it does is it sets up, and doesn't print.

    3dhubs is a service which connects people with 3d printers and people wanting to have something 3d printed

    can you lock down the measurement? I don't like that it jumps from meter to cm to mm. I'd rather have it on mm all the time.

    Thanks so much dude,  this video explained exactly what i needed to know. I spent hours last night trying to get an object into the print software! Thickness! That and it was probably 89 meters wide :/

    Once you have the scale and everything set up, how do you save that file out as the default Blender file (So it would come up with the default object you made if, for example, you make a "Standard base" for 3D printing and always want to start with that?

    Great info!

    Hi,  I was surprised by the info that the complexity can increase the price.
    Isn't it the very particularity of the 3D printers to make the same price for any design?
    As you say earlier, the size doesn't matter, only the mass; what about the complexity then? Tnkx

    Sweet! My school has a 3d printing club, and I'm making some stuff for it.
