Receiving NEW Printer.. Quich setup.. then you can't use it!!

So it's a Friday afternoon you've just received your brand new 3D printer, get it out, set it up as per the instructions... You're all exited as it's finall arrived and you've a load of CAD models you want to get printing over the weekend...

Now where is that software disk?

Definately not in the box... Have a bit more of a read...

Doh.. how dissapointing... the Simplyfy3D software is a download link from an email...spend an hour checking emails... nope not received.

Now you have to wait till Monday to get the link... a weekend of looking at a big box with blue lights.

 

So ensure you've got the software avilable before your 3dprinter arrives.

While waiting for the Simplify3D licence and download link, you can always use the free alternative Repetier Host. Works great. Now getting the printer to work is another issue... ;)
