Not only is 3D printing changing the way we conduct our everyday lives, it is making a world of difference for people such as Faith, who just received her cool new custom-3D-printed pink and purple arm.
Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.
The folks over at Structur3d Printing are starting up a video blog called GET PAST3D. In the first episode they show you how to get started tweaking your printer to use silicon to make a snazzy looking bracelet. By snazzy I mean a big blocky, wobbly, torque nut sorta thing... But it's still silicon, so it's still cool.
