    3-D Printing

    3-D Printing is becoming all the rage.

    What programs are people using to design their 3-D Prints and what companies do people recommend as 3-D production?

    It doesnt really matter, 3d printing companies like shapeways can work with .stl files. These filetypes can be produced by probably all the 3d programs. I work with cinema, but rhinoceros is being used for the 3d printer at my school..

    I don't know how to used 3D programs, so I found a company call triaxisart, where you can send 2D image & get a quote on the project but they would do everything. Printing and converting 2D to 3D.

    I've used Cinema4D, exported to OBJ, and uploaded to Shapeways... it does take some tweaking but it's really an amazing technology.
