Introduction to 3D Modeling & Printing for Wargaming

Image for Introduction to 3D Modeling & Printing for Wargaming

Learn the basics of 3D modeling & printing and enter a new age of miniatures hobbying! Many affordable 3D printers are now available for home use that can produce high quality results more than suitable for making your own terrain, conversions, or even whole miniatures. Several easy-to-use and free or affordable software packages also exist for designing these yourself, as well as numerous websites for downloading unique models and pieces designed by others. This seminar will introduce the basic concepts, terminology, and practices to get you started in 3D modeling and printing, as well as walking through a short but detailed tutorial of designing a simple part using free software. No previous knowledge or experience is required. Seminar lead Joe Kopena has a professional background in engineering design research, and greatly enjoys the hobby aspects of miniatures wargaming. He has used 3D modeling and printing extensively for his own widely followed terrain builds as well as to make critical components for the innovative NOVA 40k Narrative, LibertyHammer 40k Narrative, Molokh Gambit X-Wing Narrative Campaign, and other projects. Check out these efforts and his tutorials on 3D modeling and printing via his blog at: http://rocketshipgames.com/blogs/tjkopena/
