This video provides an end to end tutorial of the entire 3D printing process from idea all the way through to the finished product. In this video you will learn how to use blender to create 3D models, how to slice the models with Cura, how to print the models on a Creality Ender 3 and see the final object in action on the layout.
This video walks you through the design, CAD, slicing and printing of an uncoupling tool project. This is a simple project designed to demonstrate how easy it is to create models with Blender for 3D printing.
If you just want the uncoupling tool, it is available from our Trackside3D site listed below. If you want the blender files as a starting point, I have also made those available with the STL files as a Uncoupling Tool Blender Kit, also linked below.
The purpose of this video is to show railway modellers how easy it is to 3D print, and how 3D printers are a must-have tool for any railway modeller.
