Orientation: Desktop 3D Printing

This beginner-friendly overview of dekstop 3D printing will walk you through taking a pre-made design file through the entire print process, learning about settings, control, and care for your 3D printer along the way.  Many of these skills are transferable to other similar filament-driven desktop 3D printers.
