Starting Your First Print on the Creatr

Leapfrog Driver For Mac

You are now ready to import an STL file! Lets start with something simple. Download this treefrog STL file by MorenaP and import it into the program using the “Import” button. Your frog will drop down into the software as a 3D model. The next step is to center the model by clicking on the “Arrange” button.

Now you can start configuring your slicing settings by adding a process. If at any point you need some help, the software includes a Quick Start Guide that describes the basic procedures. To find it, go to Help > Quick Start Guide from within the program.

On page 5 of the Quick Start Guide is a tutorial on how to create and configure a new FFF process (FFF stands for Fused Filament Fabrication and this is the industry name for the type of 3D printing the Creatr uses). These FFF Settings determine exactly how the model prints and plays a critical role in the quality of your print. To create a new process you must click on the “Add” button. A process will pop up as “Process1” and the FFF settings window will emerge on your screen. For this simple part, you will only need one FFF process.

Simplify3D Software has made configuring settings extremely simple for Creatr users through the use of our pre-configured profiles. Select the ‘Leapfrog Creatr (right extruder)’ profile from the “Select Profile” drop-down menu and “ABS” for the “Auto-Configure for Material” container.

When you have finished changing your FFF settings, you can save them by clicking the “Save” button. After saving, press the “Prepare” button to create the machine instructions required for printing. The software will slice the part into a G-code file that the Creatr can read. The software will then prompt you to watch a preview of the print using our animated previewer. This will allow you to see what the print would look like before actually printing it on the Creatr.

Once you are satisfied with how your part looks click the red stop sign to exit the previewer. A window will pop up and ask if you are ready to print. Select yes and the MCP will appear. The printer may pause for a few seconds to stabilize the temperatures before printing. Once the desired setpoints have been reached the print will begin. In no time at all you will have your first printed part.
