123D Design Online Now Even Better for 3D Printing

Posted by in Software

Autodesk has just updated the online version of 123D Design to add even more features that make it perfect for design for 3D printing with Shapeways.

The latest iteration includes tools so that you can fillet and bevel edges, shell a part to help define wall thickness that is critical to ensure your design is 3D printable in the material of your choice.  123D Design also has a design history (not a tree) that means you can go back to a geometry you have created and edit it in a parametric way at any point in the process.  As well as solid modeling from scratch you can also import existing 3D meshes in STL and OBJ format which you can then edit and tweak to then prepare to 3D print.  If you have a 2D vector drawing that you want to bring into the 3rd dimension you can also import SVG files into 123D Design to extrude and edit.

Take a look at this quick video below to see an example of the interface and some of the tools to design for 3D print.

      First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts
      in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just
      seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
      Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

    Shapeways should create a script that runs all this blog spam through Bathsheba’s zoatron
    automatically and replaces the message text with the resulting preview image. :-)

    Sometimes I wonder what trolls and spammers did 700 years ago. But then I realize they were probably too busy trying not to starve.
