What are the steps to print my CAD file on the Fusion3 EDGE?

The workflow for printing with the Fusion3 EDGE 3D Printer is very simple.

  1. Export your CAD file to your hard drive in .STL or .OBJ format
  2. Open that file using the supplied REACTOR 3D Printing Software
  3. In REACTOR, import your file and align it on the print bed to the optimal placement (usually to minimize the amount of support structures)
  4. Select your EDGE 3D Printer print head size installed, and material you wish to print
  5. Clicking on the ‘gear’, modify any other part settings including the percent infill
  6. Select ‘PREPARE’ and save the file to your hard drive
  7. Copy that file onto your EDGE 3D printer, either via USB drive or via web browser to your EDGE 3D printer’s onboard storage
  8. Prepare the print bed with adhesive
  9. Load your filament into the printer
  10. From the printer control panel or web interface, start your print
