3D Printing & CAD

  • Craftware & Craftbot: Design and edit 3D models in Craftware. Craftware software is required if you want to print to the Craftbot 3D printer. You can install Craftware from the NPS Kiosk. If you create your 3D design in another program (for example, Tinkercad), you will need to open the file in Craftware to "slice" and then save the file as a 3G file.
