In the Material tab you can select the currently loaded material.

Under Reinforcement Material you can select a reinforcement. It’s best to ask the staff if your model needs reinforcement.

You can select the correct printer via Printer Type. We have the Mark One and the Mark Two to choose from.

Under Settings you have the option of making fine adjustments. Most of the time the settings fit and can be adopted.

Under Infill you can regulate the density of your model. Here, too, the settings can usually be adopted.

When all settings are correct, you can press Save.

Then you have to press Print.

Now you will see how much printing time and material is needed for the model. Then press Print again.

Now all important data is displayed. Confirm by pressing Print Now.

Finally, you end up in this window. Now the printer is called up and then starts printing.
