Preparing to 3D Print

There are very important issues when looking to 3-D Print your model. Kyle Houchens is an expert at getting a model prepped and sent out to a 3-D Printer or printing service out of Rhino. Whether you are printing your own design, or trying to prepare someone else model for printing, Kyle's techniques will help you get the model printed as soon as possible.

  1. 01 - What will 3D print

    Kyle introduces the concept of a watertight model. Sometimes it is called a solid or a RP ready model. Find out how Rhino can be used to create these models.
