Want to use our new 3D printer?

Here are some suggestions :)

Option 1: Download an existing 3D object to be used in class and save it to your computer 

Option 2: Create your own 3D image using Sketchup (it would help to choose "3D Printer - Inches" under "Templates" in the opening menu), and then use the extension Sketchup STL to export your creation as an STL file to your computer. 

OR...

If you're using an iPad, download the Maker Printshop App

​Next Steps.

Open the Makerbot Makerware program

Click "Add," and select your file

Click "Make," and either export to an SD card or, if your computer is connected to the printer, print!
