7/Your First 10 Things
to MakerBot
In which we provide instant satisfaction in the
form of wonderful objects that appear as if
summoned by magic spells from the luminif-
erous ether.
Between the time that you get your Replicator up and running and the time
that you get good at designing your own things, you're going to want some
things to make. This chapter focuses on a few things from Thingiverse that
we think are great. But there are many more wonderful things on there; take
the time to explore the featured and popular things to really find out what's
out there.
Once you've mastered the first few things, you'll be delighted, excited, and
energized to try the rest. By the time you've mastered all ten, you'll be ready
to start your own designs!
Hello, World
Snake by Zomboe ( Figure 7-1 )
“Hello, World” is a term from computer programming—it's the first program
you write, and usually prints out the words “Hello, World”. In 3d printing, it's
the first thing you make, and we suggest this snake, which demonstrates how
to make something with moving (well, flexing) parts out of a single object.
