Ok… Seems that I forgotten how to convert .stl files into .G-Code. I figured it out. Suggestion: can this be added into the current SOP for the 3-D Printer? I’ve done this in Cura, but I know that this can also be converted via Slic3r.

Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: OK @jfahner , I was told by Brian that you wrote the preliminary SOP for the current 3D printer. Could we add the Conversion step as well?

Thanks for the reminder, Melody. I planned on finishing that part later but never got back to it. i will start writing the slicing component tonight.

Great @jfahner . Thank you so very much! :smiley:

The SOP has now been updated to include slicing .stl’s to produce .gcode. I swapped it out at the space last night. Let me know if anything is unclear or needs improvement.

Thanks again, @jfahner , for updating the SOP. We’ll look it over.
