Print a 3 dimensional object without a 3D printer! Here's how:
We're going to first create a three-dimensional object in TinkerCAD. Be careful not to use any round shapes, or you won't be able to turn your design into a papercraft. If you get stuck, TinkerCAD's tutorial is helpful, as is your handy librarian!
Next, we're going download our TinkerCAD creation. Click "Download for 3D Printing" and select the .obj or .stl file type, saving it to the desktop. Open up Peppakura, then open your saved file and "unfold" your design.
Great! Now you're ready to print your design! But first, you may want to save your work. The free version of Peppakura, which we're using, doesn't allow you save. However, you can get around that by using Cute PDF.
Once its printed, you can cut out your creation and turn your virtual idea into a real, 3D object!
