- [Voiceover] 3ds Max now has a Send To link…to Print Studio, a program for 3D printing.…You can directly send your object…out of Max into Print Studio.…It's a very simple process.…Just select the object,…go into the Application menu,…and choose Send To, Send to Print Studio,…Send as New Scene.…Print Studio launches.…If it's already open, a new instance will be launched.…The first time you start it,…you'll be asked to connect to a printer.…
I don't actually have one connected right now.…In that case, I will choose to create…a print file for a certain printer type.…Click OK.…We get a couple of introductory tutorials here.…We can skip that.…There's our 3ds Max model loaded in.…We can zoom in with the mouse wheel,…orbit with the right mouse button,…and move the camera with the middle mouse button.…Just hold it down.…From here, we can go ahead…and run through the steps of printing our object.…
Check it for errors.…No problems.…See if it needs any supports.…We can add automatic supports before printing.…It's gonna calculate this shape…
