Hi all,

Unfortunately you can't "print" to Z-corp's 3D printers from DesignCAD, because DesignCAD's solids become empty shells, when you export them to vrml, which is the only compatible format.

It's a kind of magic!

Well, guess I don't have to rob a bank after all.

Maybe "solid" solid exports should be put on the list of things to do.

magic,

This looks like another job for ContourCAM.

Very neat, almost like there is a little troll inside the printer cabinet whittling away.
