Basic Workflow

You have your printer assembled and set up. Now you want to print a model, here is the basic workflow to get you started;

  • Create a model of the item you want to print, or download one from Thingiverse
  • Save your model in STL format
  • Load your model into the slicer of your choice i.e. Cura, Simplify3D, Slic3r
    • One strange thing in Cura, it only works in mm so if your model is inches it will appear to be very tiny.
  • Orient your model in a way that makes the printing easiest
  • Save that model in g-code format on the SD card
  • Insert the SD card into the printer
  • Use “print from SD card”
  • Sit back and enjoy
