Mastering 3D Printing

Course Description

When the average person uses a desktop 3D printer to make finished physical objects, they are overwhelmed with decisions on profiles, settings, speeds, and materials. This says 3D printing expert Richard Horne, almost always results in failure. In this course from Pearson, Horne explains everything you need to know about using Simplify3D to produce the highest quality desktop 3D printed models without wasting materials or your time. Understanding the Simplify3D software is the main focus of this course, but the information covered is useful to anyone seriously interested in desktop 3D printing. What you will learn: Master Simplify3D - the 3D printing processing software compatible with most desktop 3D printers Learn to import, scale, rotate, preview, slice, and repair 3D models before you print Understand how to tune a...
