Waldo3D: Find Matching 3D Print Models from 2D Images

One of the most interesting and promising aspects of the 3D printing industry is the 3D scanning process. Taking full 3D scans of existing objects allows printers create an exact replica of existing objects and has helped to advance 3D printing’s role in rapid-prototyping even further. Many are working on democratizing this ability, like Cappasity’s ultrabook 3D scanning software, or others working to shrink down 3D scanning capabilities onto mobile phones, like Intel or Scandy’s smartphone 3D scanning projects.

„Shapeways 3D Tools“ Helps with Sizing of 3D Models & Avoiding Loose Shells with Two New Features

Shapeways is certainly in the business of indulging and encouraging the free spirit and creativity of artists and designers. They understand though, as do those experienced in design and innovation, that for the best work you do often need some structure—and, a plan; after all, it’s not much fun if your 3D model doesn’t turn out looking spectacular–just like you envisioned.

Prepare your model for 3D printing with Blender

This tutorial was made for Blender users with an interest in 3D printing. It covers the essential information for taking your 3D model and turning it into a 3D object using the free CAD software.

Through this tutorial, you will learn some of the best practices for modeling, correcting and exporting a 3D file for 3D printing with Blender 2.7. Specifically this tutorial covers the following points:

– Modeling for a 3D print with Blender
– Optimally exporting and analyzing your file for a 3D print
– Correcting possible modeling problems

Blender is a free 3D modeling software which is optimized for 3D animation and rendering using polygonal modeling techniques. This tutorial is based off of version 2.7 of Blender – the most recent version of the software can be downloaded from the Blender website.

You don’t need to be an expert in Blender or 3D modeling in order to understand this tutorial. However, it is important to understand some of the basic functionalities of the program as we will be covering the best practices to take your model from the program into a 3D printer. The basic functionalities of Blender will not be covered in this tutorial.

For more information on the basic functionalities of the program, we invite you to visit the Blender help page. You will also find a great number of Youtube Tutorials which can help you get started in the free program.

3D Visions of the Future

Which should you read this: because there is no future of 3D printing without 3D imaging and visualization.

While 3D printing has been taking everyone and everything by storm for its ability to take virtual 3D content into the real, physical realm, there are other parts to this 3D equation called “reality computing” (that is the ability to modify reality through computing). They are just as important:
