How do I get designs to print? 2017-04-10T00:55:50+00:00

Files must be in .gcode format to run on the printers. To do this, a 3D model must be created and then sliced and exported into the G-Code.

You need three things: A 3D Model exported to STL format, A slicer that will create .gcode files from the STL, such as CURA or simplify 3D and a Printer to export to.

For complete details see the WIKI here.
