It's a 3D world, and we're just printing in it!

Or rather we will be...  getting access to a Makerbot when it's delivered in January, so I'm going to stash some notes here.

  • Past experience:  Z Corp color printer, used to print the maquettes for our Zoetrope.
  • Thingiverse id: marhar.
  • Makerware here.  This takes your STL files and generates gcode which is sent to the printer.
  • What modelling software to use?  Around here everybody has of course experience with Maya.
  • Makerbot has a guide  that lists lots of options.  Chris Anderson uses 123D, so I guess I'll start with that.  If my stuff looks bad blame him!
