Decided I am going to help others draw in their ideas for 3D-Printing and then post the finished STL files & Photo-Realistic renderings on GrabCAD.com

GRATIS … FREE … Yup ~ Just for the Fun of it!!   Whoo Hoo!!

Send me a Tweet to @MetalDesigner if you have a 3D-Printing idea …

If the designs are simple enough, I may do a few each week, but if they are more complicated I may only get one done a week … We’ll see how it goes!!

Most 3D-Printers want items less than 5 inches by 5 inches by 5 inches” in Size … but we can design items that can be pressed together!

… All it takes to design something for 3D-Printing is Creative Brainstorming!!

It will be interesting to see what 3D-Printing ideas people come up with …

I will draw up ORIGINAL ideas that have not been 3D-Printed  by others  🙂

Was contacted by a Maker this morning via email and he needed a part drawn so he could 3D-Print it.  We discussed what he needed and this is what I drew.

I am not sure what it is for… but he got a free part drawn and I had fun taking 10 minutes to draw it before heading out to the Workshop.

Emailed him the STL file and he is 3D-Printing it on his printer!!

Who’s Next?  🙂
