  1. Very cool stuff. Not toys, tools. (Or are they both?)

    I want to get into the 3D printing thing but I’m hung up by the 3D software thing.

    To be clear, I want to do my own sculpting, not just download stuff from thing-averse to print.

    Every 3D app I’ve tried has been cumbersome for me. I am unable to learn them. Autodesk Fusion 360 was the closest I got to liking an app, but the cost is crazy and the Mac port is … um, weird. Hard to justify throwing money at a thing so hacky.

    One day I hope to be able to do a fraction of what you do.
