dont know what you know about this but this is how it works - there are two parts to this (stl files & gcode files), there is the modelling software which you create or download your project (stl files), then you load it into the printer software "Cura" (supplied or downloaded).

the modelling software did not come with my printer but I use tinkercad (free download) for basic stuff and autocad for more advanced

once you have created the file (gcode files)for the printer in cura you put it on a mini SD card and insert it into the printer then play about with the hotbed & extruder settings - then make a cupof tea and wait !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. you will find loads of stuff ready for printing on the net

p.p.s you can download tinkercad & cura to practice without having a printer

its fun and if I can do it anyone can !!!!!

as mentioned above if you discuss with planning officer first then you are commited to application, might be a delegated decision so local councillors might not involved

29/12/2016 10:47:18

if it were me I would see how it goes for the first year and then decide, worst case scenario you have to do retrospective planning.

but don't put any permanent sheds on site and don't annoy any neighbors
