The printer includes a 2GB microSD card with sample 3D models, which you can slice and store on the card for direct printing. 1 Will this printer print abs and petg also? Yes, I have printed PLA, ABS, PETG and Woodfill PLA with the X3. But ABS need with hot bed, also masking tape or 3M paper tape to avoid edge warpping.
2 Does it come with any needed software? If so - what kind?
It does come with a very old version of Cura. If all you are doing is downloading models and printing this is all you need. It comes with a flash drive with an old version of cura on it. You can download the newer version online for free.
3 does it work with a apple computer? You can download Cura, a great slicing program, for your Mac for free. The micro SD card that ships with the printer includes a USB adapter and it's a breeze to transfer files from cura to the SD card. Yes, You use software to prepare the print, and load it to a Mini SD card and put that in printer. Will this accept different nozzle sizes or do you have to stay with the 0.4 mm nozzle?
It will accept other Mk10 sizes. On YouTube and people use smaller ones.
But according to online reviews people say going smaller nozzle size might create issues. You can vary the nozzle size. Smaller nozzles will clog more often with certain materials. With standard PLA 0.4mm works very reliably.
I see the software to print with, what software is needed to create models with? Like if I want to draw and print an object. I recommend using Fusion 360 in order to model something.After you have created the design, export it as an STL into CURA Slicer. Slice it and then put the gcode onto an sd card and into the printer. 6, How can I use the hot bed? Just take the glass out of the printing plat form, then put the hotbed inside. 7, Seriously how difficult is the build? It is very easy to build. Theres assembly video in the SD card , just take your time and check every piece for burrs & defects, and make sure everything is perfectly square/flush/aligned/parallel/etc. The rewards are going to be more accurate output from the printer.
