Step 1, fix 3d printer
Step 2, learn the entire CAD thing
Step 3, print prints for money
Step 4, lost all of that money paying for CAD software

@wgahnagl I've actually done a decent job of breaking even so far! (somehow)

@wgahnagl What's burning me out is, FreeCAD can only do so much before crashing and OpenSCAD is hell when I can't like, *visualize* what I'm trying to make

@wgahnagl I think it's called aphantasia or something? But it makes parametric modeling really difficult.

@wgahnagl I've looked around, but the answer is often like a "Yes and no"

If I remember right, the people I talked to had a bad time trying to get it to export properly manifold meshes for slicing

and I've only ever used Blender for fiddling with VRchat models :blobcatmeltcry:

@wgahnagl OH wait I did try it

I made a calibration cube to test but since blender likes "units" rather than inches or millimeters, I accidentally exported a microscopic cube
