There are several ways of creating a 3D print file or .gcode:
- Develop a CAD design, export as a .stl file and drag-and-drop into MatterControl to slice and print.
- Download an .stl file to print.
- 3D scan an existing object.
You are able to either drag and drop files directly into the Queue or select the Add button in the print status window to browse for a print file.
4. Select the Create button at the bottom of the Print Queue to print basic text or convert a .jpg image into a print file. The Image Converter is currently an add-on.
