3D Modeling with Blender

We have made a few posts showing off our 3D printers and some of the classes on 3D printing that we have done here at Digilent. Garrett Mace from macetech.com showed us some of the basics on how to use various 3D modeling software like AutoDesk Inventor, Autodesk 123D Design, OpenSCAD, MeshMixer, and SketchUp. Today, I’m going to introduce some of the basic modeling tools available in the free but robust Blender.

3D Printing

Recently, Digilent was entrusted with a Bits From Bytes 3D printer to use as we wish, with the stipulation that we take good care of it. A number of people here are versed in proper operation and maintenance of 3D printers, so the offer was gladly accepted.
