Please visit for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be revisiting the tripod mount we designed and cut on the K40 eBay Chinese CO2 Laser Cutter & Engraver. However this time we will be redesigning it for 3D printing in ABS on the XYZ Printing Da vinci 1.0a 3d printer.

As part of this tutorial we also learn several key points in 3D designing being:

1. Starting in 2D and extruding to 3D
2. Importing SVG files into TinkerCad
3. Issues with importing SVG files into TinkerCad and how to fix
4. Design principles
