Interested in 3D printers and 3D printing? 

Before you dive in and purchase a printer learn Sketchup!


If you are considering purchasing a 3D printer you should give some thought to what you will be printing.  While there are many, many cool & worthwhile "things" available for free download you are sure to want to edit them and/or create your own things.

SketchUp is a free program that you can use to make 3D things.  Download it here:


Be sure to choose "I plan on using it for personal projects" and download "SketchUp Make"


Once you download and install the program learn to use it by viewing these and other on-line videos



Give it a try!
