A stereolithography file, or STL, is a common method of expressing a 3D concept model. Most manufacturing systems, however, require G-code. To this end, you might be wondering how to convert STL to G-code. Find out in the following!
Converting an STL to G-code can be done easily, but converting from G-code to STL can be quite a challenge. Learn how to turn your print-ready file back into a 3D model!
G-code generators create the detailed machine instructions necessary to create a part, either in 3D printing or CNC machining. Learn more about what a G-code generator is and how it works.
Love your Inkscape and wonder if you can use it for generating G-code? You can if you read this article. We'll tell you all about switching from Inkscape to G-code.
In 3D printing, sometimes it's necessary to add code to do exactly what you want. Learn how to do this here. The G-code examples in this article give you more opportunities to make prints the way you want them to be made.
Ever wondered what file types can be converted to and from G-code? Learn about and see examples of what's possible with a G-code converter!
3D printers and CNC mills both use G-code, but have you ever wondered what the difference is? Dip your toes into the world of G-code and explore the differences between 3D printing and CNC milling.
