Blender 2.8 for 3D Printing, Start Here – Part 1 Setup

By 3D Printing Professor

If you want to use Blender to make 3D models for 3D printing, but don’t know where to start, Start Here.

I this video we’ll go over how to set up Blender to optimize it for modeling, making it as powerful as possible. We’ll setup the scale to match STL export to millimeters, we’ll setup our environment, and then enable some great plugins that i really recommend. If you’re going to follow along with the videos that will come in the future, this is how I made my Blender look that way.

Check out 3DPProfessor Discord user imonsei great google doc that helped me organize my thoughts: [Deleted, Sorry]
