Intro to 3D Printing with Cinema 4D and Makerbot
Ryan Boyle is mad genius, and one of the motion graphics leads here at The Hive. In the first of a series of posts on 3D printing, he walks us through the steps of preparing a model in Cinema 4D, and using the Makerbot printer to print it in 3D.
When Ryan isn't creating motion designs or 3D characters, he's working on his site Sketchy Pictures, and helping a creepy-yet-lovable hoard of Doodle Monsters wreak havoc on the world.
3D printing has become more and more popular these days. Thanks to companies like Makerbot you can purchase your own 3D printer small enough to fit on your desk. In this tutorial we'll show you how to model an alien space craft in Cinema 4D then take it into Makerbot's Makerware software to create a 3D print.
