How to prepare your 3D print for the Design District 3D "Style" printers

  • If you are designing your 3D prints at home, follow these steps and email the 3D .hvs file to Ms. Morgan at eleri.morgan@ocdsb.ca

Where to begin:

  1. Download an .stl file
  2. Open Launchpad3D.ca
  3. Go to “Devices” & select “Style”
  4. Delete the cube on the screen & start with a blank screen
  5. Add file - do you need to adjust size? Add rafts (does it need something to build upon)? Add supports (does your project have items that aren’t supported from the ground up?)
  6. Select “Print”
  7. Select “Download file” (it needs to be an .hvs file)
  8. Save file on the SD card (special USB)
  9. Place SD card in right side of 3D printer
