    Hi everyone! I’m pretty new to 3d printing and I have a lot of questions on the subject, so I hope you will not get mad at me for asking here at least a few of them. I think before I’ll get seriously into designing I should focus on the software I’m going to use, and that’s what I would like to ask you about. Mainly, should I start with the most simple/crudest software there is or would it be better to start on something more complicated? I’m worried that I’ll get some unwanted quirks while working with less complex software. The second question is about the software as well: should I search for CAD software that will let me design and slice it in it, or should I use a separate program for each? Does it even make a difference? Weirdly, I couldn’t find the answer to that, as it seems like most articles want to focus on the very basics (like what is 3d printing and so on), and while the answers to those questions are fine, it seems like no one wants to go into the details (it looks like some of them even steal from each other! I swear I’ve read the same answers to the same questions on at least 3 different sites) but I’m getting off-topic… The last question is about 3d pens. Would it be possible to somehow convert whatever I draw with a 3d pen to a 3d model in a CAD software? For example, if I’ll draw a cat with 3d pen, would it be possible to get its design in a software? I’m not sure how that would even work, but the very idea sounds interesting to me. Anyway, I think I’ll stop here just in case no one will ever answer me and all of this writing will go to waste. I’m sorry that I’m using your content to ask questions, but I hope you’ll understand and advice a rookie like me. Anyway, thank you for posting. I learned something from this and that’s always appreciated. Thank you, and I hope to hear back from you very soon 🙂
