MatterControlHas been a long while since I have done anything with my 3D printer or try to design something to print.  Since it’s a new year decided to try to get back into it.  Have messed around a bit with Tinkercad.   It is a great web based program for 3D modeling.   Have discovered a similar but more powerful program called MatterControl.  Have heard of it awhile back but only thought it was only for sliceing models.  Turns out it can do a lot more than that. You can design and edit with it as well.  The best part is it free..  So going to give it a try.  My main goal is to make some RGB lit letters to be used in the background for I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry YouTube channel.

Have known about the program Blender for years.  It’s a free open source toolset that can do a lot.  From animation, motion graphics, video editing, 3D modeling and more.  Years ago was going to try it out with video editing but ever got around to it.  Know that I have Elegoo Mars would like to design my own models to print.  There is a lot of great tutorials on YouTube.  My plan is once a week and try one of these tutorials out.

BlenderSoftwareLogoA little while back heard about a very cool program called Blender.  From their website, “Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite.”   Which means you can do 3D modeling and rendering.  It has animation toolsets.  All so you can add rigging to your models so it can be used in a video game.  You can even make a game with this software.  You can read about all the awesome feature > here.   The one that caught my eye is you can edit videos as well.  Which has camera/object tracking built in.  The software is free and open source so I think I will have to give it a try.
