If you design thinking about how your part will 3D print, you’ll be much more successful. Read a blog post here to understand some of those concerns:
“Cause sometimes you just need somewhere to start”
Thingiverse.com – “the internet of things” Download STL and other CAD files here that *should* be 3D printable!
Shapeways.com – want to 3D print something out of a different material? These guys have the most I’ve seen!
SupplyBetter.com – need to find other local sources for 3D printing? Check out these guys who get quotes from many 3D printing suppliers in the area
