#48312, "RE: 3D Printing"
In response to In response to 13


  

          

Hi All
Last night I downloaded Blender and did some tutorials about it, with a view to creating one piece - probably a part missing or wrong from the Minicraft kit - for printing at 1/350. Judging by how it looks I think I could go ahead and do it with Blender, but I was wondering if any of you guys (well specifically Nick and Jason) think that this program is worth learning? or is it a bit like Gimp is to Photoshop - does effectively the same job but the interface is more difficult.

Or would it be worth getting a trial version of say 3DS Max Design, or Inventor, if those might have a better, and more 'industry standard' interface?

And also, another factor is: whether I make the 3D model in Blender or another, can I output it to a file type which other 3D progs can transparently open and edit? This could be decisive because if I do make a part, I would probably release it as Copyleft, and invite others to tweak it.

Thanks
John H
