Can you create a basic mold using a 3D printed shape? The answer is yes, and it’s even easier than what you think. In this step by step tutorial, we go over the creation of a silicone mold thanks to a master that has been 3D printed and its casting in urethane. This technique allows you to create several units that will have the exact same geometry as the original master. Following the different instructions, you’ll know how to create...

Today you’ll learn more about the “fragile parts” error you receive when uploading your 3D Scan for 3D printing. BONUS we use a free 3D modeling software called MeshLab to fix this error by cleaning up the scan’s messy geometry. This is the first of 3 scan fixing articles, and in this first article we have a scan of a young girl which was rejected due to “fragile parts”. This is the most common of...
