This lesson presents the basic manual for printing a part with a 3D printer. It explains step by step the procedure to go from CAD model to 3D printed prototype.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN IN THIS LESSON
At the end of the lessone, you should be able to export the required file from the CAD software, fix the different parameters in the 3D printer software and upload the file to the 3D printer and start printing the part.
NOTE: The CATIA CAD software from Dassault Systems and the Z-suite software from Zortrax were employed to realize the pictures in this manual. The Z-suite software is the slicer dedicated to the Zortrax 3D printers. However, to obtain the same results, other slicers such as CURA could be used.
