Three different ways you can start your own business - I learned this at Techie Youth today

I looked at different ways to start your own business, and the legalities that would have to follow the legitimatization of a business. There are three different types of businesses, sole proprietorship, C-corporations, or S-Corporations. These three business types consist of different liabilities and function in different ways. Sole proprietorship means like the name, sole ownership, one person owns the business. This means that if there were to be financial struggles or other business struggles, all liabilities are on the hands of the one owner. The other corporations provide protections on their own personal property while sole proprietorship does not.

Guide to model 3D printing- I learned this at Techie Youth today

3D model printing intrigued me since the development and bigger popularization of 3D printers that we saw develop in the past few years. This professor uses a software/program called blender where is able to manipulate the movement of his 3D designs. You are able to enlarge the figure, move it along the XYZ axis, rotate 360 degrees to get a full view of the projected image. This all helps with 2D design as you are able to change and manipulate the object before printing it.
