Design and print your own 3D model? How cool is that? This course introduces the processes necessary to print physical 3D models from Revit Architecture digital files. You will have practical experience exporting the .STL format files within Autodesk Revit Architecture 2018, checking for and correcting the file for errors, setting up the 3D printer to receive the file, and printing the 3D model. Bring a 4GB flash drive to back up your work.
