How can I make a file for the 3D printer?

Files can be created in a CAD program and the export as an STL, 3D scanned from an existing object, or downloaded off the web. To find out more about the different methods of creating a STL file for 3D printing please book onto our 3D printing workshop.

I cant use CAD, how can I print something?

You could either ask us to make you a CAD file, download it from the web from a site such as Thingiverse, or use our 3D scanner

I have a file, how can I send it to you to print?

If you want us to print something for you, please send the file to hello@fablabcardiff.com giving details of what exactly you want and we will be in touch
