Today we printed toddsplod67's Minecraft spider from Thingiverse, for two reasons. First, Minecraft. Second, this 3D model is part of a tutorial for the 3D-modelling software Ringtail. There are so, so, so many modeling programs that we want to learn and it was nice to see a walkthrough tutorial for this one.

Technical notes, future flavor: Once this print-a-day-for-a-year blog is done (end of August!) we're going to transition into a series of posts about getting started with various 3D-modeling programs... which means that we'll have to learn how to get started with more 3D-modeling programs...
