We are now going to take the model into Blender and make some modifications to get it ready for 3D printing.

Many of you may already be familiar with basic editing in Blender, but I'm going to try and be as thorough as possible for those that aren't. The best way to learn things is to have a specific task you want to accomplish, or problem you want to solve. I hope this guide will be a good way for newbies to get to know this extremely powerful program.

First you will want to delete all the objects in Blender's default scene. To do this, press A until everything is selected, then press X to delete them.

To import the OBJ file, go to File > Import > Wavefront (.obj). Select the file you exported in step 1.
