>Where can I get free things to print?
https://www.thingiverse.com/
https://grabcad.com/
https://google.com/

>What CAD software should I use?
Variants of professional programs such as Solidworks (lol paying for software), Fusion360, Inventor and AutoCAD may be free depending on your profession, level of piracy and definition of ''free''.
Most anons use Fusion360, some /g/oobers prefer OpenSCAD or FreeCAD. If you want to do free-forming and modeling, Blender is alright.

Yay it's the third 3D printing general we have on 4chan. What's the catch of this one?
>>
What are you guys printing today?
>>
Is there any way to remove parts from cura? Like add a cube where I want to break the part? I usually throw the parts under the bed and that does the trick but I can do it with this model
>>
I need a custom fan blade for a project I'm working on.
Can 3D printing make objects with ~36" diameter?
Also, I have zero experience with CAD software. Is it affordable and easy to work with someone who does?
>>
Any sources on large 3D model packs that I can just download and keep offline, instead of browsing thingiverse and others for specific models each time?

What is the ball park to get something like this printed? There is no interior so I would be ok with just treating the windows as solid. A 1/24th scale model is probably 8 inches long by 2 inches tall by 4 inches wide. no moving parts.

I just model these for fun but it'd be nice to put one on a shelf.

material wise.... just something i could sand smooth and paint.

Shapeways has a calculator on their site where you upload the model, choose the material and it gives you some metrics about your model (volume etc.) as well as a price quote.

I've been working on 3D modeling for a little while in Blender now, and I've been thinking about getting into 3D printing. One thing that really inspired me was seeing a dude who printed a whole Dinobot transformer toy. How would you even go about doing something like that? I know that's really more advanced territory that a 100% printing newb like myself, but is there somewhere I can learn how to do something like this? I don't know how I would even start designing such a toy, but a-a-at least I can probably model it...

look at resin printers if you want to print stuff like that

>>808257
there's somebody on patreon who makes game figure models for printing, Ironforged Models I think they're called? Not sure. I just remember seeing them and being fucking amazed as they get like 50k a month from patreonbux.
>>
if I want to make a model but don't own a printer, can I hire out the printing to someone else?
>>
>>811274
yes

What the hell does "non-commercial" use mean for modelling software? If I make something of my own design am I still not allowed to sell it anywhere?

Autodesk will come to your house and night and kill your dog if you sell Fusion360 designs without paying.
