...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

The answer is "Sure."

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.
ceci n'est pas une signature

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.

Dudeman313

When I'm 18, probably. I already have money. :P
