CURA WANHAO EDITION USER MANUEL

1.1 Cura
 
Overview
We recommend that new users start with Cura as  it  includes a slicing engine. Host software we recommend to use Repitator. There is separate introduction of Repitator.  
 
Slicers
These  programs  take  the  3-Dimensional  model  (typically  STL/OBJ/etc)  and  determine  the  3D printer  toolpath  based  on  the  options  selected.  The  slicing  engine  uses  the  nozzle  diameter, printing  and movement  speeds,  layer height  and other  variables  to determine  the  coordinates where  it needs to move and the rates at which  it will do so. This  information  is exported out of the program as a gcode file. The gcode file is a plain-text file with a series of text-based codes and a list of the complete X,Y and Z axis coordinates used for printing the 3D model. We recommend that new users start with Cura as it includes the printer host as well.

Setup Cura
