3D Modelling – Introductory Guide

 

If you want to create a product using 3D printing, you will need to know about 3D modelling, as this is essential if you are to ensure your idea is print-ready. Keeping that in mind, read on for an introductory guide on preparing your model for 3D printing.

 

If you take a look on the Internet, you will see that you have an abundance of CAD (Computer Aided Design) programs to choose from. This software is utilised to create a 3D model, which will then be sent to the printer so that it is built to your exact specification. CAD modelling makes it possible for users to create anything from aviation designs to toy designs, and it is now available to all people, from designers to those who simply want to use it for a bit of fun. The biggest hurdle for most people is the fact that there are so many options to choose from when it comes to designing a model for 3D printing, and this can be a little bit overwhelming. This is why most people opt for CAD services when they invest in a 3D printing service. From testing stress factors of your product to analysing it from all angles, the options are well and truly endless. Once you are happy with your design, and you are confident that there are no flaws, such as holes, single stops and inversed polygons, you will need to make sure it is in the correct file format. Once you have done this, you can then send it to the 3D printer and begin the production process.
