note:the only thing i am sure on is all the programs for slicing(cura,simplify3d)— newb here !!! this is my 1st 3d printer please be understanding. i have seen alot of people use google scuplt or scupltXl and transfer files in certain formats and so on . what is the best way to go about choosing which software to use for slicing ?
Anything I missed??? And pretty sure my links and everything up-to date that I referenced. Just want to make sure this is all good trying to learn as much as I can before my unit arrives. i hope this may help someone who might buy a zim from reading for hours through the forums like I had to.
