Auto Print

Here you'll find what we discovered to be the best tips and tricks we have for automating the 3D printing process. Below you'll find our reference guide for the sequence as well as links to all the extras we've used to make it possible. Please note, familiarity with a 3D printer and the confidence to modify G-Code are required to do this with your own machine. This is a working document and will be updated as it's developed. If you have any questions, feel free to email us. Happy Hacking!
