- [Narrator] When you're finished with your design,…you can export it.…This is the lion head composition from the STL…import video in the previous chapter.…You can complete that composition…or make something of your own.…Then select the lion and then choose export.…And we have two options.…Right now, I only have one of the two shapes selected.…So we could use the selected shape…and only download the lion head,…or choose everything in the design to do the lion head…and that taurus thad I added in his mouth.…
So we have two 3D printing file options here.…The first is STL, and this is one of the more common…file formats for 3D printing.…OBJ is also more widely used if you're going to take this…into a different CAD program somewhere.…I'll click on STL to download that file.…Laser cutting is another method…for digital fabrication with Tinkercad.…So let's try doing that.…We'll choose export, and this time,…I'm just going to choose the selected shape…and click on .SVG.…
In Chrome here, I can even just click on this…to get kind of a preview of that output.…
