3D Printers are a block that allows you to print any block of any shape, with any type of texture. To get started with 3D Printers, you will need to place down a 3D Printer block next to a computer. This will give access to the printer3d component API, allowing you to set up and print models using the provided functions.
A more convenient way to setup 3D Printers is to use Open Programs Package Manager (OPPM). Once installed, run the following commands:
oppm install print3d followed by
oppm install print3d-examples. The examples can be found in
.3dm files. Take a look through the example files for available options. (Alternatively, you can download the
print3d-examples programs from OpenPrograms using
wget and an Internet Card).
In order to be able to print the models, a 3D Printer block needs to be connected to an existing computer. Once connected, you will also need to provide an Ink Cartridge and some Chamelium. The amount of chamelium used depends on the volume of the 3D print, while the amount of ink used depends on the surface area of the printed item.
To print an item, use the following command:
print3d /path/to/file.3dm providing the path to the
