How to Start
Prepare your design in your 3D software, such as TinkerCad, SketchUp or Autodesk Fusion 360. Then download and import an STL file into CURA on the attached Mac computers. Load your filament and start printing!
STL and OBJ files are needed by CURA to slice and provide the G-Code instructions to the printer
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is the recommended material type
