...when I get Microsoft's 3D Builder app that came with Windows 10 figured out,...
I haven't really used it for something useful personally, but I don't think the 3D builder really is a worthy CAD tool.
I think Google Sketchup has a free version, and Autodesk Inventor also has free 3-year student licences (though it can be harder for you to obtain one). You can also look for other tools yourself, just make sure that the tool you use is a CAD tool and not a modelling tool.
Well first, I'd have to know what the difference is :P! I've never used a 3D printer, I  just really want to get one and make cool stuff. :P

Me too :D.

He said he had a big printer and a smaller one, but is getting the ultra fine one for small projects. He also said that it's so fine that a single baby block cube half the height of an unsharpened pencil would take 5 hours to make! I don't have that patience, but when I get Microsoft's 3D Builder app that came with Windows 10 figured out, I'll recreate my current Walrii and steve art to 3D figures, and make a stand for my the gift I gave my mom for Christmas.
If you ever decide to make a 3D Walrii that is actually 3D and not flat, you should post ideas you got in the drawing and animation section, so we can give input. :)

My mom told me yesterday that she'd never get me a 3D printer.  :'(

They say that 3d printing is the future, so in 20 years you'll probably have one. Then again, they also said that about flying cars.

I'll buy one when I can, but I really wanted to learn this stuff now...
And I don't even know which project is more focused on now: flying cars or self-driving ones?

Self-driven cars are definitely more being focused on than flying cars. Of course, my comparison was a bit skewed because flying cars are a lot less practical than a 3D printer :P

That actually isn't that bad, Do you know that model it is by chance?

Is a 3D printer hard to calibrate?
It depends on how much you have done it, I being inexperienced takes a while but I haven't optimized everything yet

I don't know if there is a 3D Printing cafe or something like that where you live but if so you could start there. I don't know how expensive that would be though.

Sorry to hear Dudeman313. I guess perhaps one day she will change her mind, though, or perhaps when you are 18 or have money? And thanks for the info alexgt.
