I’m using Rhino, but some of my peers use Solidworks, Blender, and even SketchUp. You will likely need some other software to help refine and fix your models- NetFabb (be sure to find the Basic version for free) and MeshLab can help with that. Shapeways.com has some great tutorials on reducing your polycount for print and fixing holes in your meshes.
The main thing is that to create consistency, the issue is more about how you organize your files between what is the most current set of files and connectors. Its like debugging code. Its always shifting and being updated, so having a method for making and tracking the fixes will help a lot.
You’ll need some good digital calipers to help you measure printed parts.
Come check out ModiBot this Saturday at RI mini Maker Faire at Foo Fest! We’ll have a demo table for tinkering with the parts and ModiBot Myke 3d printed mini figures for kids to build and decorate.
Drop by and say “Hey!”
Always loved the idea behind this. Ultimate builders toolkit. Mix and match between any construction build system. (I still think he might be missing a few good ones)
over a period of 200 years, 3 ships perished at the same location of the coast of Wales, on the same day (December 5th) and all 3 had only one survivor. The 3 survivors all had the same name: Hugh Williams

We think so.
There’s a material available at Shapeways right now. http://www.shapeways.com/materials/elasto-plastic
They do periodic tests and this one looks like it might be here to stay. We’ve been so busy with the Kickstarter that we haven’t had a chance to make any items for our own tests. I’m not sure it’ll be available for purchase.
The only issue I see is that it’s sort of a yellowish color. I want to see if its dye-able. We’ll see if we can try a test in July. I think it’ll be pretty cool.
