3d Printing

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

I'm curious to know what 3d CAD or design software some are using to create 3d printed items. I just need a place to start looking.

 

TIA

The program I've used is Solidworks, but it's very expensive and I can't use it often for personal work. I have been looking for some free alternatives and I ran across the site for this that I want to try out whenever I get an updated computer to run it;

I've watched some videos on it and it looks promising. I'll let you know my findings if I get a chance to try it out.

Shapeways lists some free and commercial 3D modeling programs on their site. I have no idea what any of them are like or how good or bad they are, as I have no experience with 3D modeling other than buying other peoples products.
