In this lesson, you will learn what the 3D cursor is inside of Blender 2.83 and how to use it. I will teach you how to move the 3D cursor where you want it and how to use it to add objects exactly where you want it. We will also talk about the surface project feature and what the benefits are when using it.


You can use the 3D cursor to change the origin points of your designs to give you better control over your objects. Sometimes your 3D cursor can get lost so I will also show you simple ways to reset your 3D cursor for easier 3D print designing.


I never really used the 3D cursor when I was first starting out, but I encourage you to really try to learn it and add this tool to your workflow to become a stronger 3D printed designer. #b3d #3Dprinting #Design
