Need some help on 3D modeling for 3d printingHi guys! I'm in need of some information on getting started in making 3D models. My goal is to make a business selling plastic models. My idea is to render them in 3D; send them off to be 3D printed and use the 3D print to make a mold so I can produce copies of them.Need some help on 3D modeling for 3d printing by spiralofvertigo
To do that I need to be pretty well versed in how to ready up 3D models for 3D printing. I plan on sending the models off to shapeways to have them printed but I need to know how to hollow out the models/give them a core to bring down the cost of materials.
I would also appreciate any help with how to use Blender to move past the stage of just sculpting heads; I want to make a full body sculpt that is very simple but I don't know where to start.
Anyone have some 3D knowledge that can point me in the right direction? I would really really appreciate it!
