Learn modeling for 3D Printing using Blender 3D, Netfabb
What you'll learn
- By the end of this course, you will be able to model and 3D print a design in less than 15 minutes
- Blender 3D, (open source software)
- Netfabb Basic (free version)
- GIMP (open source software)
This course is for all those who have heard a lot about 3d printing, but often wondered on how can they without any earlier experience of working on 3d modeling software's, can really take these tools in their own hands to 3D model & print their designs.
You will learn modeling for 3d printing from scratch to finish, this in not any other 3d modeling course which will just give you an idea about how 3d modeling is done. And then leave you midway without actually demonstrating on how to prepare a 3d model for 3d printing
Preparing a 3D model for 3D printing has many basic prerequisites like
- Setting the model to real world dimensions in mm, inches, cm or ft
- Making sure the model is water tight, providing wall thickness, removing of non manifold faces, overlapping faces , etc.
- Exporting the model in a file format which is accepted by 3d printers
You will learn all these steps, in addition this course will also show you how to print and sell your models in 3d printing market places like shapeways, thingiverse, sculpteo, and make them a source of cash flow, requiring your minimum attention & time once you are done with uploading your models.
The best benefit of this course is that you will learn all this without any need of buying a costly 3d modelling software. You will see me using some very popular and powerful open source, 3d modelling & printing software's like Blender 3D, Netfabb.
No lengthy & tiring 3D modeling sessions, when there are abundant tricks, commands, & inbuilt software tools to get our desired results with precision accuracy and tiny fraction of time.
Using every tool at our disposal to best of our advantage, creating your first 3d printable design in less than 5 minutes.
In 1.5 hours of lectures you will gain the core syrup of my 8 years of experience in 3D modeling, and the tricks & tools i have learnt over this period.
If you take this course, i will also offer you support if you get stuck somewhere in designing your models for 3d print.
Who this course is for:
- Engineers, Architects
- Designers, artists, hobbyists
- Freelancers, entrepreneur
I am Abhishek singh, I have a degree in Computer engineering from IIT Delhi.
3D modeling for me started as a hobby which turned into my passion and full time career over time. I have been working for more than 8 years now in the capacity of 3D modeler , Animator and Character artist. I started as a 3D design artist for Advertising where i worked on popular campaigns for Kit Kat, Fanta. I further enhanced my skills as a Game & Mobile app developer, with one of my project Bowling wizards being selected as one of the Top 10 apps in Techsparks 2012.
At present i am working as Design head for 3DIGIPRINTS, India's 1st on Demand 3D printing Ecosytem. I like to guide and educate people about the latest trends & technologies of this industry and am a visiting faculty at MAAC delhi, India's premier vfx & animation training institute.
During the past 2-3 years i have keenly observed how 3D printing is emerging as a new manufacturing economy in itself, & i feel highly optimistic about the range of opportunities it is going to offer to designers, 3D modelers and to the entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on it.
