Rapid Prototyping tips

3D Systems posted some good tips.


My own tip is if you need a tapped hole in the printed part, model a hole that is smaller than the tap drill size. Tap the thread after you receive the part. Sending the part to be printed with the thread usually does not result with a good thread because of shrinkage/expansion and tolerance.
