As an artist from the start the step to design as a job wasn't to large a leap and with the availability of powerful 3d tools I just kept marching. I am now in the process of buying my first 3d printer much to the dismay of my girlfriend.
Also, never trust someone who starts an explanation with "oh it's easy, you just...". It's never easy.
