Autodesk Fusion 3d and Prusa i3

Post by Rodolfo Santos » Sat Sep 02, 2017 6:16 pm

I there. I want to start into 3D. I was thinking about investing on the Prusa i3. I use the autodesk fusion 360 but I don't know if it is compatible with this printer. Can you give me a hand?

It is; you export STL files from fusion and then slice them in software such as slic3r or prusa control.

3d cad software and a 3d printer don't have a dependency with each other. Process is
3d cad --> 3d file (stl) --> slicing software --> gcode file --> 3d printer

One is for creating 3d models, the other for printing them. Ofcourse not all models can be printed well on a FDM printer, but this has nothing to do with the 3d cad programme
