Understanding Your Slicer

A key part of learning 3D printing is how to use the 3D printer software, the Slicer. It controls how to improve 3D print quality but it can appear overwhelming at first.

    Who is this for?

    • If you're a complete beginner and don't have much (or any!) of an idea of where to begin or even how to use the 3D printer. 

    • You have a specific fault with a print (or your printer) right now and you desperately need it fixed. You just want to ask someone whose actually done it before because the other stuff out there is too general and what you've tried isn't working. 

    • Maybe you've had some success with your prints, but you know they're not as good as they could be. Or you want to expand your knowledge, like printing TPU, or without supports.

    • Some of our members print for their own business. They want a service like ours to support them, so they can focus their time for their customers. 

    • Maybe you've been assigned "3D printer operator" at work because you casually mentioned you'd used one before. You now need a full stack of skills to get up to speed, and ideally some tech support you can fall back on when others are looking to you for answers.

    Who is it NOT for?

    • You know pretty much everything there is to know about your printer. You're so advanced, you don't even look at the first layer anymore. 

    • You only print with resin, DLP / SLA based printers - sorry but our content cannot help you at this time as we only cater for desktop consumer level FFF (filament) based printers. 

    • If you feel there's only 1 thing you want to learn about 3D printing. To really get it, you've got to understand how everything relates to each other in harmony. While we can help you fix a specific 3D printing problem you're having, we can't split up the course or masterclasses. 

    • If you're not willing to put what you learn from our training and the help from experts into practice, please do not join. We only want to help those who want to get results. This is a done with you service, not done for you. 

    • "My prints are perfect, I'm just looking for my next challenge." - Sorry, no hard problems to solve here, we just make things simple.

    "If you're new to learning 3D printing - there's no better place to start."

    Many people try to learn how to use a 3D printer by painstakingly trawling through forums, Facebook groups or Youtube.

     

    This makes sense on the surface, I get it - I tried that too. But let me explain why this is usually actually damaging to your learning and results (and so so frustrating). 

     

    Sure there’s some value to be had from these places, but it is a minefield. 

    Here’s the problem with free advice online (it’s usually wrong for several reasons):

    1. People tell you something that only applies to their machine / setup / model / slicer / filament…

    2. People tell you what they should actually be doing, not you.

    3. People tell you what they’ve heard someone else say, but never did. (so common)

    4. People tell you what they did, even if it was the wrong thing, to feel good about their decision. (maybe checkout their prints, then decide if you want their advice)

    5. People give advice to gain status/control. They tell you what you “have” to do, as a command.

    And if you DO get lucky, and get the 6th type of response (the correct one, from someone who knows and isn’t on a power trip) do you really know enough to sort through all that clutter and choose the advice you should spend your time following?

     

    Even after all of that, those “good” responses are often over simplistic (understandably so, because they’ve replied to similar questions so many times before) and most frustratingly of all, when you follow up with more questions they’re often nowhere to be found...

     

    Is that the kind of struggle you want to put up with?

     

    Contrast all that with what our members experience. Here's what one of our members, Dean Quarterman had to say about his first experience with our experts >>>

    Keeping it simple.

    My name’s Ed Tyson, and I started my 3D printing journey 7 years ago, originally to make RC plane and drone parts and modifications. The creating part was amazing, but learning how to properly use the 3D printer and maximise its potential was admittedly a daunting experience! It was made up of a LOT of 'trial and error', hours searching online and begging on forums for some answers - not the most enjoyable.

     

    However, it was during this time I realised I could stop others going through the same pain-staking journey I'd had. Facts not opinions, concise detailed information, easy-to-digest and all in one place. Sounds like heaven right? Gathering my fantastic team of experienced 3D printer boffins took some time, but I truly believe we have the best of the best.

     

    I've always grown my business on feedback. I read every email and take onboard all feedback so we can continue to improve and make the Institute of 3D Printing what you want, inclusively.

    What's Included When You Join The Institute Of 3D Printing Today:

    The Complete Confusion-Free Guide To 3D Printing Mastery Core Course      $497  INCLUDED

    How to Use a 3D Printer Step by Step

    If you’ve not used a printer before, or you’re not getting the results you need from your printer right now, no course in the world can help you with your prints better than this one. Every single element of your 3D printer and how to use it is explained, step by step. 

     

    Your instructor Adam will detail every part of your printer, and take you through our honed strategy to ensure reliable printing. He’s going to take care of you, leaving no stone unturned.

     

    This course is structured into 6 modules, each broken down into 3-5 easily digestible lessons ranging from 10-20 minutes long so you can follow along easily in order. 

     

    Starting at bed levelling and getting perfect adhesion for that first layer, how to choose temperatures and cooling for various materials and types of prints, all the way through to optimising your prints once they’re already looking pretty good. It truly is the full stack.

     

    And if you do need to troubleshoot at the end (also covered) you’ll have a much easier time of things because you know everything was already set up correctly. You’ll be building on a solid foundation instead of forever trying to clean up mistakes you didn’t realise you’d made if you’d tried to learn all this stuff the “traditional” way.

     

    That means common issues that plague most people who 3D print, won't be a concern for you. Things like ghosting, choosing layer height, banishing "elephants foot", under extrusion, over extrusion, tuning retraction, stopping layer shifting, managing tolerances, deciding on infill patterns, optmising resolution or working out when you should use a raft vs a brim are all things we'll help you prevent before they become issues.

    Deep-Dive Masterclasses     $197  INCLUDED

    How to Improve 3D Print Quality

     

    The perfect accompaniment for the core course, each masterclass hosted by either Steve or Denis covers a specific topic in exact and truly unparalleled levels of detail. 

     

    You get all the experience based theory in the core course, so that you can understand how every part of 3D printing relates to each other. And these skills based masterclasses follow on from that to give the hyper practical side to printing.

    That means the instructors show you exactly what they’d do if they came out to optimise a certain aspect of your printer or prints. All you have to do is watch and follow along with your machine. It couldn’t be easier. 

     

    Every question you could have is answered as you watch. The instructors assume nothing, and leave no viewer behind. And in the event you do have questions, you can ask them directly to clarify something. Where else online ensures you get answers to all your questions as you learn?

     

    Where necessary, each masterclass is also segmented into the specific slicer you’re using, so you don’t have to watch any content that’s not relevant to you. 

     

    Each masterclass episode is like a concentrated 20-35 minute shot of fascinating and usable 3D printing knowledge, packed with little-known tips and hacks (like how to reduce stringing with retraction settings or getting the best overhangs, or stoping z banding or just 3D printing without support). 3D Printing will feel like second nature after watching just a few of these. 

     

    We release a brand new masterclass each month, when you join you’ll get instant access to a few already and every new one will add to your 3D printing skillset.

    Advanced Slicer Mastery Course     $297 INCLUDED

    How To Learn 3D Printing Software

    The Slicer is the software you use to tell your printer how to print the 3D model you want. This is where all the magic happens, so it’s important you a) use the right Slicer for what you want to achieve and b) understand how to use all the features correctly to get the result you wanted.

     

    This course was something our first members had been crying out for, and after a lot of planning they’ve been thrilled at what our in-house Slicer masters Susi and Dave have delivered. 

     

    There is nothing available that even comes close to the detail of training offered in this course.

     

    While getting your printer to be simply “click and print” reliable happens mostly with correct printer setup, this course is the missing link to take your printing to the next level. 

     

    You’ll unlock all the clever abilities you didn’t even know about. And don’t worry, we’ll also let you what we honestly feel are just gimmicks that you can ignore. 

     

    That’s because The Institute of 3D Printing isn’t about dumping as much knowledge we can find on you, it’s about getting you up to “printing is second nature” level in a simple, fast way so you can spend more time enjoying what you print, with who you love. 

     

    To call it just one course doesn't do it justice, because each of the big 3 are broken down into easily digestible Basic, Advanced and Expert stages, so you can jump in at your level. The big 3 slicers are Cura (free), Prusa Slicer (free) and Simplify3D (paid). For 99% of printing Cura and Prusa Slicer are perfect for the job. 

     

    With some Slicers packing over 400 features (and counting with continual updates) this course is the perfect antidote to overwhelm. With new content updated when we can as new Slicer updates are released. 

    Our Members-Only Community     $priceless  INCLUDED

    Join a community where our members share common interests, ideas and ‘hacks’ and generally support each other figuring out challenges on their creative journey. 

     

    Our members are our family, we all share a belief to make 3D printing simpler so that we can use it to improve our lives and those around us more easily. 

     

    This is a community that loves seeing new projects and they’ll often get as excited as you about checking out what you’re working on. 

     

    Even a quick fix project you’ve just thrown together and didn’t give a second thought to could prove to be just the inspiration someone else needed to get started on theirs - so don’t keep it to yourself!

     

    Our members come from a range of different technical and non technical backgrounds including home DIY hobbyists and makers, traditional 3D printer enthusiasts, retired engineers, those that use 3D printing in the workplace and many more. Whatever your background, you’re in good company in as a member of the Io3DP.

    Technical Helpers On Hand     $397  INCLUDED

    Sometimes you can have all the information you need to hand, but you feel stuck, or an unexpected problem arises or maybe, you’d just like a second opinion from someone whose done it all before. 

     

    I completely get that, I’m still learning every day and having someone to just ask quickly and bounce ideas around with is probably the single biggest aspect of my success with it all to date. I need that feedback from those who have different experiences to me, to keep my learning on point. 

    So allow me to introduce my team of in-house 3D printing experts, who have years of practical experience that they’re eager to share with you, as and when you need it. 

     

    While we can’t pretend that they know absolutely everything about 3D printing, the software, techniques and related projects, their breath and depth of technical knowledge and their ability to explain it all simply, is unrivalled and frankly hugely impressive. 

     

    It’s kinda hard to explain, but it’s the sort of battle hardened knowledge that when you start to ask a question, they usually just get exactly what it is you’re referring to half way through, and they’re invariably spot on with their answer. 

     

    It’s so refreshing to speak to people like that, especially if you’re used to those “copy and paste” gurus who’ve simply seen or heard something someone else say and pedal it forward just to make them seem smart. 

     

    It’s safe to say our team will always give you clarity on your projects, they’ll tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. They’ve been through it all before, so why feel like you need to reinvent the wheel? 

     

    If you have a question or get stuck at any point just shoot them your questions or thoughts and they’ll be happy to help. Simple.

     

    What’s more, they’re not just vast information storing robots - they actually care about your success and your projects, so they’ll work with you to figure things out. They’re the friendly faces you can depend on, and before long you’ll probably start to wish you had mentors like these in loads of other areas of your life, too. 

    Plus so much more...

    ALL included for just $27/month

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Here are a few answers to our most common questions

    • Q: What exactly is included in the membership?

      A: The very second you log in you’ll get access to all this: Modules 1 & 2 (8 videos) , 3 deep-dive masterclasses and multiple slicer mastery classes.

       

      It's whats inside these first modules that are crucial to anyone learning 3D printing. 

       

      You’ll also have access to the books, PDF worksheets, audio files and a ton of other bonus content as soon as you join.

       

      In short, we’ve balanced the perfect amount of stuff so you can binge for hours straight away if you like, while still keeping it all easy to take in, in bite sized chunks. 

    • Q: Why is this a monthly payment membership?

      A: It doesn’t have to be - we are offering the individual courses to buy at full price, and some choose to buy them to get full access to everything, all at once. 

       

      However, we wanted this to be accessible to as many people as possible, so we introduced the low monthly payment option. As you’ll see, this comes with additional benefits too.

       

      In addition with 3D printing changing and advancing all the time it’s important the content you’re receiving is up to date, which we wouldn’t be able to deliver on a one-time stand-alone course. 


      To be clear though, there is no contract, you can easily leave anytime. The membership is designed so you can join just for the amount of time you need, and simply leave when you’re at the level you want to be.

    • Q: How long will I need to be subscribed before I have the full course?

      A: Combining what you get when you first log in, and how much content is delivered weekly, you'll have received the full Core Course and the Slicer course (and a whole lot more) at 3 months.

       

      After those courses, we deliver increasingly more varied and advanced content (still explained simply) to further your progress. 

    • Q: Are the videos subtitled?

      A: Yes! Our earlier members helped point this out to us, those who were hard of hearing or where English isn't their first language have trouble following online video content.

       

      As soon as we realised this was a priority to our members, we started to caption every video in the membership (we're about 80% done). 

       

      This had to be done manually due to the specific language commonly used in 3D printing isn’t something automatic captioning services have much experience picking up on, so you can be rest assured on the accuracy. 

    • Q: Do you cover the safety concerns with 3D printers?

      A: Yes, this is a hugely important aspect of 3D printing and something hardly anyone touches on. 

       

      It’s extremely important to use 3D printers correctly with your health as the most significant priority. Unfortunately the term “health and safety” immediately turns most people off - but it doesn't change the fact that most people are using their printers incorrectly from that respect. 

       

      So please ensure you take the time to watch the safety videos in the membership.

      • Q: Why shouldn’t I just use forum and Facebook groups to learn?​

        A: Simply put, free help is never free - you pay tenfold with your time. Honestly, I always found forums exhausting. Here's why. 

         

        If you’re searching for existing answers, there’s a ton of duplication in threads. And where there’s duplication, there’s a lot of inconsistency in the quality of answers. 

         

        No matter how well intentioned they are, you nearly always end up with opposing views from 2 or more people claiming to know what they’re talking about. Who should you believe?

         

        It leaves you almost as confused as you started. Browsing forums for a short while left me clear on only one thing: in 3D printing there is no consensus on anything. 

         

        You’re also likely asking a question that either has already been asked a lot of times already or that the person answering thinks has been asked before.

         

        So a common issue is that if you do get an answer, they misunderstand the question, and so your answer is irrelevant to your exact situation. But you might not realise that until you’ve wasted your time blindly following their advice. 

         

        Or perhaps their answer is on track but they’ve answered it so many times already they’re bored of answering the same questions so they leave out specific details that you needed, that was new to you.

         

        And/or then they ignore all your follow up questions (even more frustrating). 

         

        The worst bit, is that you can have 8 printers with what looks to be a similar problem, but all have different causes. What they don’t realise is your issue is nearly always unique. Everything you did up until this point is different, so you get different results and need different answers. 

         

        If you never knew the steps to take to begin with, no amount of troubleshooting will ever get you on the right track. Your future success will always be held back by the mistakes you didn’t know you made. 

         

        Our experts are verified in their knowledge and experience across a huge range of 3D printers. They can fast track your progress like nothing else. And the best bit? They have a genuine interest in your projects and success. They actually care. 

      • Q: What's the catch?

        A: There is no catch. To be clear, you are not entering into a contract, and you can leave easily at any time.

         

        You get a ton of bonus content when you sign up, and get to keep most of it even if you do choose to cancel (see it as a thank you gift from us for trying it out) and get to access everything mentioned above. 

         

        The only difference between buying the courses outright and opting for the membership is the rate of content delivery. The membership delivers new content weekly, and continues to do so with new & future trainings we create for as long as you choose to remain a member. 

         

        I wanted to create the ultimate 3D printing educational programme, complete with unlimited help and support because I know how overwhelming all this can be if you try to go it alone.

      Frequently Asked Questions


      Here are a few answers to our most common questions

      • Q: What exactly is included in the membership?

        A: The second you log in you’ll get access to: Modules 1 & 2 (8 videos) , 3 deep-dive masterclasses and multiple slicer mastery classes.

         

        It's whats inside these first modules that are crucial to anyone learning 3D printing. 

         

        You’ll also have access to the books, PDF worksheets, audio files and a ton of other bonus content as soon as you join.

         

        In short, we’ve balanced the perfect amount of stuff so you can binge for hours straight away if you like, while still keeping it all easy to take in, in bite sized chunks. 

         

         

      • Q: Why is this a monthly payment membership?

        A: It doesn’t have to be - we are offering the individual courses to buy at full price, and some choose to buy them to get full access to everything, all at once. 

         

        However, we wanted this to be accessible to as many people as possible, so we introduced the low monthly payment option.

         

        As you’ll see, this comes with additional benefits too...

         

        In addition with 3D printing changing and advancing all the time it’s important the content you’re receiving is up to date, which we wouldn’t be able to deliver on a one-time stand-alone course. 


        To be clear though, there is no contract, you can easily leave anytime.

         

        The membership is designed so you can join just for the amount of time you need, and simply leave when you’re at the level you want to be.

      • Q: How long will I need to be subscribed before I have the full course?

        A: Combining what you get when you first log in, and how much content is delivered weekly, you'll have received the full Core Course and the Slicer course (and a whole lot more) at 3 months.

         

        After those courses, we deliver increasingly more varied and advanced content (still explained simply) to further your progress. 

      • Q: Are the videos subtitled?

        A: Yes! Our earlier members helped point this out to us, those who were hard of hearing or where English isn't their first language have trouble following online video content.

         

        As soon as we realised this was a priority to our members, we started to caption every video in the membership (we're about 95% done). 

         

        This had to be done manually due to the specific language commonly used in 3D printing isn’t something automatic captioning services have much experience picking up on, so you can be rest assured on the accuracy. 

      • Q: Do you cover the safety concerns with 3D printers?

        A: Yes, this is a hugely important aspect of 3D printing and something hardly anyone touches on. 

         

        It’s extremely important to use 3D printers correctly with your health as the most significant priority.

         

        Unfortunately the term “health and safety” immediately turns most people off - but it doesn't change the fact that most people are using their printers incorrectly from that respect. 

         

        So please ensure you take the time to watch the safety videos in the membership.

        • Q: Why shouldn’t I just use forum and Facebook groups to learn?​

          A: Simply put, free help is never free - you pay tenfold with your time. Honestly, I always found forums exhausting. Here's why. 

           

          If you’re searching for existing answers, there’s a ton of duplication in threads. And where there’s duplication, there’s a lot of inconsistency in the quality of answers. 

           

          No matter how well intentioned they are, you nearly always end up with opposing views from 2 or more people claiming to know what they’re talking about. Who should you believe?

           

          It leaves you almost as confused as you started. Browsing forums for a short while left me clear on only one thing: in 3D printing there is no consensus on anything. 

           

          You’re also likely asking a question that either has already been asked a lot of times already or that the person answering thinks has been asked before.

           

          So a common issue is that if you do get an answer, they misunderstand the question, and so your answer is irrelevant to your exact situation.

           

          But you might not realise that until you’ve wasted your time blindly following their advice. 

           

          Or perhaps their answer is on track but they’ve answered it so many times already they’re bored of answering the same questions so they leave out specific details that you needed, that was new to you.
