Gorgeous 3D Train Station is Railfan’s First Model

The folks at Tinkercad (a simple web-based 3D app where I made the model) asked me to do a guest post for their blog, which was posted today. If you’re interested in reading the whole thing, you can check it out here.

3D printing is a concept I’ve always found interesting, but my lack of knowledge in 3D modeling made it a bit out of my reach. I’m sure I’d have little difficulty learning a 3D program, I just don’t have the time to commit to it. Thankfully, I discovered Tinkercad – not only was it extremely easy to learn, it allowed me to start building the things I imagined in my head in no time. Somehow, the idea came to me that I should try to build a model of Brewster station with these newfound skills. It seemed like a great way to learn Tinkercad and make my first 3D model (actually, my first model period – as real-life modeling is another facet of the railfan community), but also to experiment in printing 3D with Shapeways.
