"Thank you very much for this. I just recently bought an Ender 3 V2 as my first 3D Printer and I ran into limitations that program gave me or just things that are actually easier to design with a more complex software. This was very helpful, keep it up!"

-Arata Fleece

What you’ll learn

  • Learn the skills you need to design your own models for 3d printing using Blender, a powerful 3d modeling software application that is free and open source.
  • Bring your ideas into the physical world by designing in Blender for 3d printing.
  • Render your designs using Blender's advanced render engines to visualize your projects before you print.
  • Export your custom 3d models to Cura to prepare them for 3d printing.
  • Learn to design your own unique creations from the initial idea stage to a complete finished 3d model.


Course Description:

There are many great 3d models available to download online for 3d printing, however having the ability to design your own objects opens a whole new world of opportunities for 3d printing. This is what makes 3d printing really powerful: being able to think of something you want to create, and being able to make it in the real world.
