  • Need advice on Arduino projects and programming
    In addition to the other great suggestions here I wanted to point out that you can practice and learn a lot for free using an online simulator such as and (among others)! And you don't have to buy an Arduino or any parts to get started! Source: 4 months ago
  • Arduino calender clock project
    And you can prototype all of this first to get it working for free using an online simulator at sites like or! Source: 4 months ago
  • I’m not a mechanic, but I just rolled these guys out of my shop for a cat show I was vending at.
    Hit up and you can start making things right away. My first design was there and it probably took 5 minutes for the prototype, then 15 minutes to tweak measurements. Really easy (and free) to dive in by doing. Once you nail that, you can get Fusion360 (also free for personal use) or a number of others. Source: 10 months ago
  • Anyone know where I can find an STL for record player Stitch?
    When it comes to somewhat simple designs like this, I use - it's a realllly basic drawing CAD web interface and you can make some pretty great stuff with it with a little creativity. Source: 11 months ago
  • Brand new: what do I do?
    But if you want to start right now without buying anything go to and create an account. You can create circuits and put code in there It's probably best to mess around there first anyway while you get used to resistors etc so you don't blow anything. Source: 11 months ago
  • Is there a way to fill in this hole on Cura or Prusa?
    Go Its easier than blender or other software. As long as you are smart enough to play with lego, you can use tinkercad. Source: 12 months ago
  • Are rants allowed? Because I need to vent. Nothing went right today.
    For free software use 3d builder. Get it for free from Microsoft store, or use its free. Source: almost 1 year ago
  • What is a good 3d modeling program - this is where I started and I've managed to make some neat things with it. It's mostly matching up geometric shapes and cutting pieces away to get the result, so not the best for organic shapes. Source: about 1 year ago
  • 3D printed a stand for my Tecsun pl-990 (New to using cad)
    TinkerCAD has a mode where you can actually build with bricks like that. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Frosthaven character boxes
    I've been trying to learn as a more feature rich upgrade to which I've done most of my tinkering on. In a stroke of luck I found what appears to be the original design for Pu1p's character box (and the other insert bits) and I was able to make a copy and modify it. Source: about 1 year ago
  • I’m wanting to make a fish tank float valve adapter for an auto top off, I have 0 experience 3D printing, how hard would this be to do? My buddy has a 3D printer but I would need to make the file.
    You might also try which is a free web-based CAD modeler. I am not sure about being able to generate threads with it but it's easy to get started on. It isn't parametric however. Source: about 1 year ago
  • [Tools] Holster and Pistol Mount that fits G-Code brand holsters. Use promo code: GCODE for $5 off plus free shipping.
    And yes, the guy has some R&D into the design but any prototypes also only cost him 30 cents to produce and basic 3D design can be stupid easy (or as hard as you want it to be if you want to learn C.A.D.) via websites like This isn't some drug which took billions to research yet only costs a penny a pill to produce therefore there is R&D built into the retail cost. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Best modelling software for people new to 3d?
    After you graduate from I recommend next, it is more of a CAD experience, but has a lower learning curve and great tutorials. Source: about 1 year ago
  • How to get started with 3D modeling
    Most people start with something simple like Tinkercad . It's web-based (works in browser), totally free, nothing to download. It has a low learning curve and is fine for doing all kinds of things. Basically you move simple shapes like cubes, spheres and cones from a menu onto a drawing area and then stretch and mutate them according to what you need. To cut areas out you use shapes as holes. It's very intuitive. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Why do the models go back down to the ground when i select the next page it even does this with the slicing where it puts it all the way back to the ground?
    If you want to merge the 2 before printing then you need to use a 3d program. Something simple like would let you do that. If you want to print them both separate then just move one out of the way of the other but they should be on the buildplate. Source: about 1 year ago
  • What do you guys think is good for modeling 3d prints?
    Most people start with Tinkercad. It's free, easy to learn, and is decent for designing simple shapes. Then when they outgrow Tinkercad they move on to something more sophisticated. That's what I did. For the last couple years I've been using OnShape - also free, lots of capabilities, lots of tutorials and a large user community willing to give advice. Source: over 1 year ago
  • was about to partake in the big benchy challenge, but my power went out. so here it is, 80% of a 300% benchy 2.5 hours in on my ender 3.
    You need tinker cad. it's free and easy. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is there an easy way to add text to the underside of a print? (like on this benchy) Preferably using open source software.
    Easiest way without having to download anything would be Makes is really easy to make new 3d models or edit existing stl files. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Dose Milwaukee sell this power tool organizer separately? where could I find an equivalent?
    That would be an easy first 3d print, using Source: over 1 year ago
  • Help with Ender 3D pro printer
    The premise is simple enough, the 3d files are .stl. You "slice" them which makes them .gcode files for the 3d printers to use. There are a couple great sites for pre-mades like you can just download one, go into your slicing software hit slice/save and throw it on the printer. The only thing you need to put into your slicing software and ultimaker has a great drop drop which has ender... Source: over 1 year ago
  • 3D Printed keyboard feet for 60 cents at library
    You could design something (say, using an online app like, and export to a supported file ("stl"). The library would take that file, run it through a program that slices it into thousands of layers ("gcode"), and send that file to the printer. That file is actually sort-of readable by eye -- it's thousands of lines that effectively give X,Y,Z locations for the 3d printer nozzle to go to. Source: over 1 year ago
