    You would post it here.
    Creative General Discussion - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards
    Rules are that if you don't have anything to actually show as far as work, it goes in General discussion. The Mods will move it for you because they are awesome like that.

    To answer your questions.
    1. With a computer program that can output a STL file. Sketchup and some others are free (or close to it). The ones I use are RHINO and Solidworks (expensive, especially the latter)
    2. Yes, but doesn't everything?
    3. no need for a rendering program. You are wanting to print it, not make it look "purdy" in the computer. Again, all you need is something that can save or convert it to a STL file.

    R!

    EDIT: I'm assuming this is related to your other thread about Girmmy's leg.

    Are those two that much more advanced than Shapeways? What would a new user miss out on going the Shapeways route?

    Use the "report bad post" function ([​IMG]) instead of posting where to post a thread. Reporting a post alerts moderation of a thread that needs moving.
