…With 3D printing, it's important to create models that meet the…tolerances for the technology and material you want to work with.…Whether you're working off a design guideline, from a…service bureau, or rules that you've developed for your…own desktop machine, measuring your model in netFabb can…assure that your design meets your tolerances before printing.…I sometimes also use these features to study…files I've downloaded to learn about the design…decisions other designers are making. So take a look up at the parts side bar.…
We have two parts in this file, a walled bunny and a wire frame bunny.…And we're going to work with the walled bunny first.…So make sure it's on and the wire frame bunny is off.…With our bunny selected, go up to the Measuring tool.…And zoom out a little bit just so we have a little bit better view of him.…Now there's some new buttons over here on the sidebar.…At the top here are some selection filters.…When we're measuring in netFabb we're going to be dropping points on the model.…
