How to print something in 3D

Before printing, you have to prepare your model:

  1. Produce your own 3D model in any program you like.
  2. Export your model in STL format.
  3. We will generate the G-Code from YOUR STL file.
  4. Print. This might take a couple of hours depending on the model.

As a student, you can download free software from the UT-Network.
But there are many other available, such as:
