Using Files

Postby zakw » Mon Nov 16, 2015 8:18 pm

I downloaded zip files and open in Inventor just fine. However when I try to print I am no able. I've tried creating .stl but am not making progress. Any suggestions?

Are you using a slicer line Slic3r or Cura? Slivers convert .stl files into g-code, a kind of road map used by 3D printers to construct an object.

If you're doing all that, and it's still going wrong, we'll need more information on what, exactly, you're printing on, and what's going wrong.
