On this episode of 3D Printing 101 I’ll be discussing the 3 best CAD programs for 3D Printing that you can get started with for FREE. All of these produce .stl files and perfect companions for your 3D Printer!
If you would like to learn more about any of these programs, drop a comment letting me know.
3D Printing 101 is a series designed to help get 3D Printing Novices up to speed and Printing quickly! Be sure to subscribe to Maker’s Muse so you don’t miss any future videos. 🙂
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
