I want to design a miniature helmet and armor set and 3D print it. But I'd like the model to be about 3 feet tall. I've never 3D printed anything and I've only just started with 3D modeling. Been using Cinema 4D for the time being.

Here are some questions:

1. Is C4D a good program for modeling characters and preparing them for 3D print? Or should I be looking at AutoCAD or Zbrush?

2. What is a great home 3D printer that can print something that large? The largest piece is just over 30 inches. Would you know of a good one to buy?

3. Back on software, I need to be able to build parts and possibly animate them minimally. Which is why I thought C4D was a good choice. Does C4D have 3D print capability? Is it print friendly? Or should I go with another software? Ideally, I'd like to be able to stress-test joints and parts of the model using material presets or parameters. I know I'm kind of out of my field right now, but that is what I am eventually trying to get to.

I think that is it for now. If you have questions for me, let me know.

What do you need it for?
3d printing isn't /3/. It's /diy/

they have a general.
I'd like to 3D print character models, body armor, and architectural stuff.

I'll repost in /diy/, thanks.
