While the guides here might not quite be equal to a 3D printing design degree, it is our aim that the tutorials you find on this site are the most informative you will find anywhere. They’re comprehensive to the point where someone who hasn’t even opened their software yet, can follow them through to create a file ready for printing.
The guides are easily selectable based on Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels. Our experienced expert designers guide you through a variety of printable projects, along with specific training on creating specialist designs, like snug fitting clips, living hinges or smooth interlocking gears. There’s a 3D print design tutorial for everyone.
There’s a multitude of 3D design software suitable for 3D printing, but we’ve focused our guides around the 3 most preferred suites; TinkerCAD, Blender 3D and Fusion 360. They’re all free to use for individual users, and they’re suitable for varying levels of ability. To understand their key differences, checkout our comparison page.
Which CAD for 3D printing software you learn all really depends on what sort of 3D models you want to create and how long you’re able to spend learning it.
