Before you can print a 3D object, you need to create the item you want to print using special
3D modelling software.

In the magazine's 3D Design Tutorials we will initially focus on SketchUp Make, which is an excellent starter program for designing in 3D (see Issue 1, page 8).

To download SketchUp Make for free and begin designing today, click here

If you want to view the Design Files in STL format once you have downloaded them, you will need to have an STL File Reader installed on your computer. These are also free to download.
