How to Use a 3-D Printer


By: Ethan Vu

For our project we are going to need to use a 3-D printer.  A 3-D printer is a device that can create 3 dimensional objects.

First in order to 3-D print something you need to create a design with a CAD program.  After you create and export the design in the STL format you have to preheat the 3-D printer.  Once you insert the filament you should import the design file to the the printer software.  After adjusting to the right fit press the “make” button and save the file.  Connect the printer to your desktop and print the desired object.  Simple as that.
