Source model files?

Hello,

Which ones are the source files for Plen's body? The ones from Blender or the ones from Solid works?

In other words, if I want to edit a body part, what files should I use as a start?

Thanks!

Hi, rocha

We have been applying the development process that using Blender for the high design quality parts and using SolidWorks for mechanism elements, so you should use both 3DCAD.

In the future, all parts will be implemented by SolidWorks.

Thanks Guvalif!

What about using software that is more accessible to hobbyists? Solidworks is very expensive!!!

Some alternatives: Autodesk Fusion 360 (free for hobbyists), OnShape (public designs are free).

Hi rocha,

You can use solid works files by Autodesk Fusion 360.
