Design Creation

Use 3D drafting software to create a design. Any program may be used as long as the file 3Dcan be saved in .STL format.
Many are available from the Internet and are free to use:
Use a pre-existing design repository (such as Thingiverse). Look for free designs that have printed successfully.
