How to prepare a model for 3D printing
This lesson explains how to prepare a model for 3D printing. It looks at creating an exportable file (STL) from Fusion 360 and describes the key settings that students will need to understand when slicing a file (I.e. infill, layer height, raft). This resource is useful to those not using Fusion 360, but you may wish to replace slides with your own CAD programme.
