    Really Fusion 360? It’s a cloud software where you can’t save your project files locally if you wanted to, and it’s already a busybody about Win7. How do we know it’s not keeping track of filenames as so-called “anonymous metadata”?

        This playlist has everything that’s generally needed for using blender for 3d printing and then everything else blender can be used for.
