This is a step by step guide for using free design tools to create 2D and 3D designs for 3D printing. The purpose of the design was to produce a resistor lead forming tool that would ensure that all resistors in a project were bent in an identical way, the perfect tool for those working on an electronics project that is going to be marked.
Download and use a number of 3D CAD software suites to design your 3D Print. You can then export the files in a .stl format. Below is a list of three 3D CAD software packages for creating 3D designs for your 3D printer:
Selecting 3D Printer Filament. 3D printers work by building up thin layers of heated plastic material, or filament. Which you use can depend on the end use and the type of printer you have. Find out the differences between the types.
This Kitronik University Course covers aspects of 3D Printing, including general FAQs such as the differences between types of filament, and Robox RBX-01 specific resources such as changing the print head, loading filament and more.
