Let’s break this whole 3D printing thing down into easy, digestible pieces so you can get 3D printing and creating right out of the box. Your way. The right way. The Robo way.
4 ways to get started
Below is our four most optimal ways to take your STL file (3D model) and convert it into G-CODE (printable file). You can use whichever option suits you the best. After all, it’s your world to create — we’re just living in it. And remember, before starting any print, ensure your Z-offset is correct and filament is loaded (see quick start guide for details). Explore below and get printing in no time.
Compare our software options to choose which printing platforms work for you.
