3D Printing Blender Modelling

Creating a simple cone shape with Blender and exporting for 3D printing

Although I can’t wait to start printing more complicated and sophisticated 3D models, it is my intention to start small with simple shapes and models so that I can get to better understand the Artillery Sidewinder X1 3D printer and how it works.

I am as new to Blender as I am to the 3D printer so in this video I start by creating a simple shape, in this case a cone. I then export the cone as an STL file. I have installed Repetier from the Artillery memory stick and load the STL file into that.

I then export using the Slic3r settings as a .gcode which which I can load onto the memory stick for the Sidewinder X1 3D printer to print.

Thank you for watching.
