If you can cut/paste , download, ..
Look at thingyverse.. its free..
You down load the *stl* file(which is ziped- means its compressed, you simply un-zip it)open the free slicing software, and open the stl file in it. .
Then save it onto a micr sd card which fits in the printer

Well, another gentleman on this forum has accessed something to print for me - I just gave him the link to the item and he downloaded the files and printed it this last weekend. (Currently entrusted to the care of the Post Office.)

Yes there are good eggs in the forum that are doing this for those of us that do not wish to make the technical leap into 3D printing thankfully. I suspect in the future that new younger ones will be taking the tech to great places and the abilities of the machines will only get better. Would that 3D printers had been in place around 2000, I would probably have been drawn in.

You know I had forgotten he had bashed a Saxon into a Harz, made such a good job of it I thought he was repainting a TL one. Thanks for the link Rhino.
