[edit] Overview

3D Printing is a very popular facet of the maker/hacker movement. Though they are still a bit difficult to use/calibrate, they are capable of printing 3D items based on CAD models and using extruded filament.

[edit] Software

3D Printing:

  • Repetierhost used by the Freeside terminal to generate gcode from .stl files and command the 3D printers
  • Slic3r is integrated with repetier host above or used as a stand alone to generate machine readable gcode from an .stl 3D model.
Printer Firmware

CAD/3D Modeling:

Any software that can generate an .stl 3D image file is suitable. Below is an incomplete list of popular options.

  • openscad.org
  • tinkercad.com
  • blender.org
  • sketchup.com
  • AutoDesk (various products)
