by Jodi Johnson, Senior Editor for 3D Printing, October 6, 2019 3D printing has exploded in popularity, but it’s not always easy to use.
A recent article in Ars Technic’s print magazine, 3D Design, shows a printer that prints out a model of a woman’s head, and it looks pretty convincing, but the paper it’s printed on isn’t a real piece of plastic.
Instead, it’s a printed plastic that was designed by the same team who designed the original Stratasys printer.3D Printing is becoming a real thing, but only if you’re willing to put in the effort to learn the basics.
To learn how to get started with the technology, check out the video below, in which we dive into how to create 3D objects from scratch.
The printer you’re about to see is a 3D-printing kit, and you’ll need a desktop computer and an Internet connection to use it.
To make the object, you’ll print a model, lay it out, and then print another model, all in a matter of minutes.

Once you have your object, it can then be cut and pasted into an existing 3D printer to print.
To do this, you can either buy a new printer from a store like Thingiverse, or use the printer’s software to create a 3d model.
This is where the fun begins, as you’ll see how the software can help you create a model that’s as realistic as possible.
Once you’ve finished creating your model, you may need to tweak it a bit to get it to look as close to reality as possible, or maybe add a few extras.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to print out a woman in a bikini.
Step 1: Choose a modelWe recommend you pick a model with a body that’s realistic enough to print with a desktop 3D software.
That means it has a realistic torso and a realistic head.
It also means it’s going to be a bit more than just the basic head and torso.
In this case, the model should have legs and a torso.
The model you choose is going to have a lot of features, like its head, neck, arms, and feet.
Make sure you choose one that’s going be able to print, and that has some texture.
For example, the photo below shows the head and neck of a model printed out with an X-acto knife.
To create a realistic model, choose a model from Thingiverse or 3D Hub that’s 3D printed.

Step 2: Choose colors and texturesThe first step is to pick a color for your model.
You can choose between a solid color like red or blue, or a matte black or white.
You don’t need to worry about how a model looks in real life, though; just go with what you like.
For this tutorial we chose a red model, and in our test, it worked out well.
The printer did a good job of printing a good, smooth surface.
Step 3: Create the 3D modelYou should now have a model.
To make sure you’re making a good model, select the model in the print menu.
Then, choose the 3d print option.
If it doesn’t look right, the 3ds Max software is going of and can’t open the file.
Step 4: Make the model 3D printableThis step is the most time-consuming.
The 3d printer will take a bit longer than normal, but once it’s done, the printer will print the model out in a solid, matte finish.
If you don’t like the results, just go back to step 3 and select the 3DS Max option again.
Step 5: Add your own detailsThe 3D design you chose will need to be applied to the model.
The more options you choose, the more detailed the design will be.
For this example, we selected the same option for our model, but we also went with a black and white pattern, as shown in the photo above.
You can choose any combination of color and texture, but you need to make sure it’s all solid, not rough.
The black and red pattern is good enough, so we went with it.
The 3d tool used for this tutorial is the 3Ds Max software.
For the most part, you will only need to apply a solid object.
You’ll need to select the material option, and make sure the object is a solid.
Step 6: Save your model as a modelAfter you have printed your model out, you should be able view it in your 3ds view by going to the 3rd party files tab and clicking “Add model.”
You’ll then be prompted to select a file from your computer.
Select your model file and click “Save model.”
Step 7: Print your
