Dear Lifehacker, I recently bought myself a 3D Printer and was wondering what I could do to monetise this expensive purchase? I have considered options like printing on demand with sites like 3DHubs, or making something I could sell on Etsy, but are there many other options? Are there any issues or risks I should be wary of?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
This week we've been learning 3D modelling with Rhino 3D. If you've been following along, congratulations! You've made it to the end of the series and are now well on your way to being able to model up just about anything. Today we're looking at how to bring everything you learned together and additional resources you can use to learn more.
Yesterday we introduced you to 3D modeling using an app called Rhino 3D. Today we're diving in to the interface and toolbars so you can get to know your new environment.
Do you have a product idea you want to create, or even send to a 3D printer like Ponoko the Makerbot? Do you love concept design, character art or just visualising your ideas in 3D space? In this Lifehacker Night School Series we're going to take a look at how you can do all of that by learning the basics of 3D modelling.
