We give a lot of examples in our training programs about how to do certain things like:
- How to fix meshes
- How to evaluate meshes you download
- How to create your own meshes
- How to properly analyze models for 3D printing
Now, we're asking you to apply your learning to these fun problems! Sign up fro this free course, download the models, and try the exercises on your own. We help you with the answers, so these are not too hard...but these activities are meant to teach you about the basics of 3D design 3D printing, and are based on HoneyPoint3D training for Meshmixer, Fusion 360, and more!
Even if you are not a member of one of our classes, we invite you to sign up for this class, download the free software (Autodesk products, primarily), and test out your skills.
If you are into 3D printing, these exercises will help you better manage how you work with 3D models and help you in getting better prints more reliably.
We will be updating this course frequently, so check back often!
