  1. Upload an object to the polar cloud or choose one of our community objects

  2. Move, rotate, and pick a final position for your object. Use our "drop surface to bed" picker if you need help.

  3. Start your job and keep an eye on it with our Remote Monitoring. The webcam, percentage complete, and temperatures are all available from anywhere in the world.

 

Infill is the support structure inside your object. Changing Infill affects your print’s density. A higher percentage will result in a more solid object, while 0% infill will make your object hollow.

Shells are the outer layers that make up the surface of your prints. Adding more shells does not affect its external dimensions, but can make your object stronger.

Layer Height, also known as Print Resolution, changes the surface quality of a 3D print. Low resolution means the layers are thicker, objects print faster, and the surface quality is rougher. High resolution means the layers are thinner, objects print slower, and the surface is smoother. We suggest printing at our standard print quality.
