Custom 3D printed designs with Makerbot’s Customizer

Custom 3D printed designs with Makerbot’s Customizer

Although having a 3D printer means you can create custom object of your own design, that doesn’t change the fact that most object printed on Makerbots and RepRaps are copies, or slight derivations, of already existing object. If you need a gear, just go grab an OpenSCAD file for a gear, and a custom smart phone case can be easily made by modifying an already existing one. The problem with this approach, though, is you’ll need to learn OpenSCAD or another 3D design tool. Enter the Makerbot Customizer , a web app that allows you to create custom versions of other people’s work right in your browser.
