Jonathan Williamson at Blender Cookie explains in the video below how to create your models for 3D printing at Shapeways in Blender.

However, preparing your models for 3D printing has it's own set of requirements. You need to take into account the physical size of the model. Is the model solid or hollow? How thick are the walls? Will the form support its self in the chose material? Among other things, these are just a few of the bits you need to keep in mind when preparing your model for printing.


This tutorial takes you through the process of preparing Suzanne, Blender's monkey mascot, for printing from start to finish. You'll learn how to work with real-world measurements, how to hollow out the model, how to check for non-manifold meshes, how to make an escape hole, and more.

Blender Cookie offers a 15% off your 3D Print at Shapeways with code: b6cgk, valid through February 19, 2013.
