Call for Content: Blenderart Magazine #40



BlenderArt Magazine is looking for content for their new issue, with theme '3D printing'.

Sandra Gilbert writes:

It's time again to start thinking about articles, tutorials and images for Issue # 40 of Blenderart Magazine.

The theme for this issue is “3d Printing”

With the growing popularity of 3d printing and the lowering cost of both 3d printing services and 3d printers themselves, now is an exciting time to take a closer look at 3d printing and Blender. We are going to take a look at what it is, what it takes to print something in 3d, the services/materials available and some of the more popular 3d printers on the market.

What we are looking for:

  • Do you have a 3d printer?
  • What kind?
  • How does it work with blender, what do you need to keep in mind during the design phase
  • Do you use a 3d printing service?
  • Which one, what has been your experience,
  • what have you had 3d printed
  • Designing for 3d print
  • what do you need to keep in mind
  • Using 3d printers for rapid prototyping and product design

*warning: lack of submissions could result in an entire issue of fuzzy bunnies, puffy hearts and a galley filled with random images off my hard drive .... :P …... goes off to check number and variety of images on my hard drive …. just in case. :P

  1. Thank you for what you do for the community! It really is appreciated. And this is a subject that I am really interested in, and certainly will be looking forward to this issue, more so than usual.

    Again, thank you.

  2. Great topic!!!!
    I'm starting new degree of study, it is Academy of Fine Art in Poland (ASP) designing and my university is buying new stuff for 3d printing :)

  3. Looking forward to it, but I have what may be a really stupid question....
    This says Issue 40 (as it does on their site), but there are only issues available up to 37. I've been out of the loop for a little while, so did I miss something?

    • LOL, we got a little out of whack but it is all good. Issue #38 is in layout and should be released within a week or two. Issue #39 will be going to proofing end of this week sometime.And that brings us to issue #40, which I am currently accepting submissions for. :P

      • Hoo Yah!!!! It's coming. It's coming.... I can't wait..
        And yes , I look forward to the new issue.
        hey, wait a minute, why wait three months!
        I thought two months. I guess y'all working too hard.
        anyway, Thank you.

  4. wow, 1 to 40. good work people
    I want to know what look like "issue 50" in the future?
    I really enjoy reading magazine.

  5. I am using Blender 3D for authoring my 3D prints for RepRap Prusa Mendel 3D printer. Blender is great tool for STL conversions.
