Jewelry Design Tutorial: Creating a model for 3D printer with Blender and netfabb

Tutorial is partially outdated. A lot of new tools came out since this tutorial was recorded. Here is outdated parts:
– Scale “undercut” object. → Now there is offset tool (Shrink/Fatten with Even Thickness option enabled).
– Creating additional “measurement” objects to check thickness or length. → Now there is Ruler/Protractor tool.
– Using netfabb for model checks. → Now Blender has 3D Print Toolbox add-on and Mesh Analysis tools.
– For boolean operations it is better to use Booltron add-on: https://youtu.be/KxbJSUQpw7I Instead of Sculpt Tools UI add-on.
