SpaceClaim tutorial: Prepare your model for 3D Printing with SpaceClaim
This tutorial is aimed at 3D printing enthusiasts who are already familiar with SpaceClaim and would like to learn how to create and repair objects for 3D Printing on SpaceClaim.
Throughout this tutorial, you will learn the best practices for modeling, correcting and exporting an object to be 3D printed. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have mastered:
- Model for 3D Printing with SpaceClaim
- Analyze and Export your 3D model with SpaceClaim
- Repair an STL File for 3D Printing
- Turn a 3D Scan into a printable model
Then, you will be able to upload your 3D file on our website and 3D print it!
SpaceClaim is a game changer in the 3D modeling industry. Its software is intuitive, easy to use and shortens modeling times a lot. It is also quite adapted to 3D printing since objects are created from volumes and not surfaces. In the latest version of SpaceClaim, there is a new STL editing tool that we are also going to review in this tutorial.
To understand this tutorial, mastering the SpaceClaim basics is required but it is very easy to learn how to use SpaceClaim as it is a very intuitive software. It absolutely not reserved to engineers and designers and a couple of hours are enough to handle the software's basics. Tutorials can be found on the SpaceClaim Tutorial page.
SpaceClaim is a commercial software but you can ask for a 15 days trial. Educational Licenses are also available with discounts. All info to be found on the purchase page .
