This is my record of my learning to use a 3D printer. We have a Solidoodle printer. Near as I can tell at this point, using a 3D printer is akin to learning how to figure skate blind folded and covered with bubble wrap. You can’t really tell what effect changes have, and there’s too many things to learn all at once.
That being said, it is a fun thing. Seeing an object finish is a true joy.
Right now, I’m working with the same models repeatedly so that I can gain understanding about changing the myriad variables. It is definitely a 2 step forward and one step backward process, but bit by bit it’s happening.
