3D printing directly from SOLIDWORKS

Question asked by Jernej Vovk on Jul 5, 2018

Hello! Can anyone help me with the following question: which 3D printers support direct printing from SOLIDWORKS to the 3D printer itself? I know the printer has to support the SOLIDWORKS 3D Print API, but how do you ''install'' the API on the printer? Do the supported printers come with the API automatically installed? Do you just have to connect the printer to your computer and simply export the parts via SOLIDWORKS Print3D? What I'm trying to ask is, what is the general process for directly 3D printing from SOLIDWORKS? Thank you.
