Instructions for Use: 

There are three major steps to do doing a 3d print. 
1) Build the model - This can be done in many programs. We recommend starting with Tinkercad.com and thingiverse.com. Later you can use Blender or OpenScad to build your models.
2) Slice the Model - This can be done in MakerWare. You generate gcode for
the printer by setting the quality, infill, shell and other printer perimeters. 
3) Print - Load the Printer with plastic and run print from SD card.
