Slicing the Model


Slicing 3D model in the STL format:

Section 1: Slicing software

Once you have a 3D STL model you must now make a path for the 3D printer to follow so that it can make the model layer by layer. To do this we are going to use slicing software. When using the Prusa printer we will use the software named PrusaSlicer (Shown below).

Section 2: Using Prusa slicing software

Print with a "Brim" to stop the object from falling over during the printing process.

Print with "Supports" to stop the print from failing while printing overhangs.
