Hi, I am a brand new (wet behind the ears) user on this site. I have some privative questions to ask as I am thinking about buying a cheap 3D printer.
1. I have sketchup16 and have installed the stl extension installed … so I can export a stl file. Now what do I do with it?
2. I read about slicing...and I assume I need to import a stl file into it so it can create a file to send to the printer, is that correct?
3. I can't seem to figure out what other software may be needed to purchase along with the 3D printer.
I have no manufacturing background, but at 67 years of age, I have a lot of ideas that could be put to use with a 3D printer, but not a lot of disposable income.
I have a windows10 pc and it does non support open gl video, so I may also have to upgrade or get a newer computer.
Any advice would be appreciated.
