Neat, but too hard to use.
The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeller
In general, this is a wonderful program. A great editor, and it's quite easy to use.
Unfortunately, it really is for programmers. While I can muddle through everything, I'm not a programmer so it's extremely time consuming for me to make anything.
3d editing: Said to be very difficult to use, and it is. There is an argument that in mastering it one gains a huge set of capabilities with one tool. I was unable to get that far.
Video editing: Defaults are stupid and features are missing. Maybe it'll be passable in a few years.
It has a portable zip, with no install required. Yay!
SketchUp Make is the free SketchUp version.
So simple it's actually difficult to use.
Tiko is a unibody 3d printer which I backed.
To get this working, I had to really push hard to get the filament to load. This was a frustrating first experience. I was then entirely unimpressed with the quality of its prints, even after a lot of fiddling.
Later, when I returned to use it, it seems that filament has snapped off inside it, and it thinks its loaded and will not load new filament. Heating does not remove it. I fiddled a lot, once more.. I'm giving up on it, it's garbage.
I did end up fixing it.. after giving it away.
See Tiko first impressions. It fails, hard.
You require a wireless connection to it.
3D printing is a method of creating a object.
Just as a printer paints ink onto paper, a 3D printer paints a plastic-like substance into a surface and then builds layers on top. Think of it like a pastry bag but in three dimensions. So instead of a gingerbread house with icing being painted on top, think of the entire house being made of that icing.
This is just to house some 3d printing/scanning-related notes.
This isn't the full extent of my notes, which are scattered across who knows where. Oh well.
