so, if you want to print some model.
you should have a *.stl file.

you can choose slicing software. (here , we use slice3r)
After this. We can slice a *.stl file now

Tip: when you print, the distance between nozzle and plate should be 0.3mm or so, if the distance is too big, the structure would be loose too, the total shape would be effected.
