Setting up a model to 3D print requires a slicing software – think of it as a print menu. You can choose settings for your model and export the G-code file that tells the 3D printer what to do on each layer of your print. If you’re interested, feel free to practice each setting while following along with this guide.
We based this interactive guide on Craftware, a free slicing software that is designed to be used with Craftbot 3D printers. If you are looking for a guide for a different slicing software, have questions about your new 3D printer, or need advice or troubleshooting help, don’t hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to help you!
