    Davinci jr 1.0 3d printer

    Matt Thomas

      Hello all.

      Hope all is well. I have been wanting to 3d print for the last 8 months but never got to I because I didn't know how to model anything. But now that I'm in a class, that is all changing haha

      I currently use solidworks and sketchup pro for my  modeling software.

      I purchased a davinci jr 1.0 from a friend about 8 months ago and I have never used it.

      So here is my questions, I have no idea how old my printer is nor do I know what software it needs to take my solidworks or sketchup files and adjust them, rotate them, set quality and then print said part. I know that xyzware is the proprietary software but I heard it lacks big time.

      Today in class was my first time even looking at  3d printer print and I got a glimpse of the software it used. It was nice, it said how much it weighed, how long it would take to print on balanced, draft or normal modes, allowed rotating the part on the printer bed etc etc

      I just want this to be close to wht I saw in class

      Thanks

       

      I have tried the support forums over at xyz but I don't think they are monitored offten.
