The easiest and most expeditious method of 3D printing relies on finding pre-existing 3D models that either suit your needs or can be edited to meet your requirements. This workshop focuses on where to find 3D models for 3D printing, how to differentiate between 3D model formats, how to test 3D models to make sure they are intact and of satisfactory quality, and how to edit 3D models in various ways using Meshmixer.
