3D Printing & Scanning

3D Printing happens in four main steps:

  1. Design It
  2. Slice It
  3. Load It
  4. Make It

The design step is pretty universal no matter which printer you wish to use.


  • Your model must be 'watertight' having no unjoined edges. A continuous, solid object.
  • Your file must be in .STL or .OBJ format.

*After the design step, each printer acts a bit differently. Stop by the periodicals room in SFL to learn more.*
