    Default Using Xara for 3D printing

    I just got my first 3D printer a few days ago, this was a test print I thought I would share with the Forum, the drawing is from the Xara content catalog (I take no credit for creating it), I exported the file in a format that could be read by my 3D modeling software. I worked on the drawing to give it some dimension along the Z axis and saved it as an STL file. Sliced and diced it for the printer resulting in a piece of plastic that looks pretty nice. Final thoughts: I can use Xara to draw shapes and turn them into real objects. Cool to the max.

    Nice result Mike.

    I exported the file in a format that could be read by my 3D modeling software.
    Which format was that if you don't mind me asking?

    Nice work
    What 3D printer brand did you get?Thinking of getting one (if priced reasonable).

    @Acorn, oh no, you might have a terrible accident.

    3D printers have dropped in price thanks to China.
