    3ds vs Maya vs Blender

    Hello all, I'm not familiar at all with this type of software. I've been using Fusion 360, and have used Pro-E for modeling. I am wanting to incorporate realistic designs into my modeled parts. Meaning I need to have specific dimensions, but also want to have Dragons, Skulls, Faces etc on the part. I figured if I am using Fusion 360 it would probably be a good idea to stick with Autodesk software.

    Seems from what I have been reading 3ds is more what I'm looking for and Maya would...

    Some good free software solutions could be OnShape and Fusion 360. I was running OnShape and I was happy. Unfortunately when I returned home I wasn't able to run it due to the high internet demand and the lack of the internet here at home. I then switched to Fusion 360 and I have been happy ever since. Its very powerful and they are nice enough to offer a free license for enthusiasts.

    Both are definitely a learning curve. They both seem to provide good tutorial and help, Fusion 360...

    You should be able to upload a Solidworks file into Onshape and then save out a .stl file for slicing in Cura from there. I only suggest Onshape because it is free* and has almost no hardware requirements. Unfortunately, Onshape does not support uploading of .stl files directly, but that shouldn't be a problem in this particular application. Fusion 360 may be another free option, but I haven't used it in a while and is taking its sweet time updating. I'll give you an update when it decides to...

    replied to Parametric vs Direct Modeling
    I taught Autodesk Inventor for a number of years. It's too bad its so expensive as it a really good parametric modeling software. I urge you to try it if you can. Its free to students and teachers at all levels. Currently I am using Sketchup and Cadd. I have used 123d and tried Fusion 360, but found them lacking.

    I am a retired engineer so when I got into true modeling, it took me some time to adjust. I am not an artistic type to begin with.

    Autodesk Inventor should definitely work as long as it can export clean STL files. You can then import that file into your slicer and print. Many people without pro software like Autodesk Fusion 360, so I'm sure inventor would work just as well.

    I use Autodesk 123D because it was free and easy to use both online and offline. On my older laptop it is slow to load but ok on Intel I5 and of course the more RAM is better. I shall look into Fusion 360

    Fusion 360 is not all that difficult and the best way to learn is to watch a lot of Lars Christensen videos as he part of the Autodesk team and experiment a lot with all the different features. It is my Cad of choice and design everything I print myself. Lots of practice .

  • That's a lot of questions! I'll try your software question. I have played around with Fusion 360. It works well, but I eventually settled on SpaceClaim because of the direct modeling features. DesignSpark Mechanical is the free version.

    Many people also use other programs in the Autodesk suite such as 3ds Max since it is all free for educational and personal use.

  • Yes its Mark
    I'm not the most original when it comes to usernames for forums lol!

    A calibration cube is pretty simple really.
    Its essentially just a small open top cube, its made to check that the printer is printing the right size!

    eg. The cube should be 20.00mm X 20.00mm X 20.00mm with a 1.00mm wall thickness!
    Print it off and get the digital calipers out and measure it... If its dab on all good!
    If its not thats what you need to tweak settings...

  • Yes it most definitely can be 3D printed and the lettering can be done as one. However I would like to make a suggestion. I'm familiar with autocad. Autodesk has a program called fusion 360 it's free for hobbies. It's an extremely powerful tool and much better for 3D printing than autocad. I advise you to at least check out a YouTube video about it do a search for fusion 360 Arduino enclosure tutorial I'm sure you will be impressed. You can model everything paremetric right down to the finest detail...

    Look at Autodesk Fusion 360. You can get a hobbyist license for free and I use it for all my designs and mods to STL files.

    Is this printable?

    Hey all. I have Zero experience with 3d printing or 3d modeling. I plan on downloading Autodesk 360 and watching some tutorials. I want to make a simple speaker grill for a specific speaker so measurements have to be pretty exact. I want to make a raised a grill so there is a flat part that screws to the speaker and then a raised part about an inch above it. The picture is from a google search for basically what i want to make out of one piece. Is that possible or would it perhaps be better to make...

  • Recommend 3D software for creating a Sci-Fi Action Figure/ Statue

    Brand new to this. Just bought a Ender 3 Pro, still in the box. But what I ultimately want to do is create (print) figures/statues (see pic) from my Comicbook series from he middle 1980s. My research and someone's suggestions are all over the place; from Tinkercad, to Blender, Zbrush and AutoDesk Fusion 360. I am very familiar with Photoshop if that helps. Any suggests to build or model this character? Also what material is best? The character shown here is chrome...

    I am new, please help me to modify the project

    Hello, first of all hello to all at the forum, I bought JGAurora 5 Printer, and would like to learn to do very simple models. I started to learn from youtube yesterday, I have GoggleSketchup that I was learning a bit years ago and I am the most familiar with this but I also learn Autodesk Fusion 360. I cut models with Cura. But I want to start and am stuck here.

    I know only how to rescale all model to make everything proportionally bigger.

    I own the Brodit mount to my...
