How do I prepare my 3D file to print?

To print a 3D file on the Ultimaker, you need to use their proprietary software, Cura. You can access this program on the iMac in the Makerspace, or you can download it on your computer: https://ultimaker.com/en/products/cura-software
You must save your print to an SD card. If your computer doesn’t have an SD card slot, you can save the file to a USB drive and then use the iMac in the Makerspace to transfer from the USB drive to the Ultimaker. This is necessary because the Ultimaker only has an SD card slot.
