Submitting files to the Potterbot Micro8
Models can be submitted to the Micro8 printer as any kind of mesh, preferably an STL. Please export your mesh from whatever modeling software you use in millimeters to ensure it is scaled properly. Your geometry should conform to certain guidelines spelled out the in the clay printer design guide.
If there are any issues with your geometry, it will be removed from the print queue and you will be asked to make changes before resubmitting it. You should include notes with your mesh when submitting it stating the layer height, and nozzle width you’re expecting to use. Default will be a 1mm layer height with a 3mm nozzle width. Specify if you want to print a shell only and whether you want to print a bottom. A top is not an option for a shell only print.
Submit your part for printing via 3DPrinterOS but uploading your STL. From the My Files page, click on the Apps button to the right of your part’s listing on the page.
From the menu that appears, click on the Print through Industrial printers Factory button.
After that, find the Potterbot Micro8 in the printers list and click on the Queue button to the right of it.
Be sure to include notes with your model at this point.
Your job will then be in the queue for the printer. Please watch your email for updates regarding your print job.
