For this week's video tutorial we are joined by game artist and 3D printing enthusiast Jonathan Shaller who is kind enough to share with us his tips for recycling all of those worn out silicon molds.
In this video we will cover a neat way to use the transpose tool to measure relative scale and thicknesses in ZBrush using the transpose tool. This is a handy way to figure out if your 3D prints are within the tolerance of your 3D printer.
In today's tutorial we are going to show you effective techniques and benefits to using 3D Print layers. Let's get started!
In today's video tutorial, 3D artist Greg Perkins will show us his process of creating a mold from a 3D Print.
In this video our featured designer Paul Braddock will cover how to Cold Cast your 3D Printed design.
In this video we jump into Maya to model the snap pin that we demonstrated from Part 1. Afterwards we 3D Print the pin to see how it works in practical applications. Enjoy!
In this video we will look at how we used a 'snap in' pin system to cut out parts of the character so that when it is 3D Printed, the character parts will snap together into 1 single piece.

When prints with SLA 3D Printers, it can save you a lot of material and print time by making the model hollow. However, sometimes you might want to "fill" in the model to give it the weight it should. Check out this video to see our hollow print filling techniques.
In this video, we will go through the process of replacing your build plate tape on your FFF/FDM 3D printer.
In this video we will be going over some of the new features of Preform 1.5 software by FormLabs.
Sometimes software doesn't always generate supports exactly where you need them. A great way to work around those limitations is to use a software called Meshmixer to add custom supports exactly where you need it.
This is one of the many methods one can use to release their 3d SLA print from the build platform.
