CURA WANHAO EDITION USER MANUAL

1.1 Cura 
 
Overview 
We recommend that new users start with Cura as  it  includes a slicing engine. 


Slicers 
These  programs  take  the  3-Dimensional  model  (typically  STL/OBJ/etc)  and  determine  the  3D printer  toolpath  based  on  the  options  selected.  The  slicing  engine  uses  the  nozzle  diameter, printing  and movement  speeds,  layer height  and other  variables  to determine  the  coordinates where  it needs to move and the rates at which  it will do so. This  information  is exported out of the program as a gcode file. The gcode file is a plain-text file with a series of text-based codes and a list of the complete X,Y and Z axis coordinates used for printing the 3D model. We recommend that new users start with Cura as it includes the printer host as well.

Setup Cura 
Cura  is  available  for  download  on  our  website  at DOWNLOADING  When installing, it is recommended to uninstall any previous versions of Cura you may have been using. When first opening  Cura,  you  will  be  prompted  to  go  through  the  First  run  wizard.  This  will  consist  of selecting your printer.  It  is  important  to  select  the correct printer , as Cura uses custom profiles and machines settings based upon which printer you are running.
