Print Often, Learn through PrintingTake every opportunity to print your model, or parts of your model, available to you. You will learn quite a bit about your model by holding it physically in your hand. And if you use each opportunity to measure and compare your real world model to your digital one, you will make sure you detect faster whether any of your modeling operations has shifted your design off of the baseline you established creating the dummy object.
Collect the various drafts you have attempted during the design stage to have handy for testing finishing techniques.
