What software do ceramic 3D printers use?

If you want to make more creative shapes, you need to do model design and model slicing. 

Model design software

Before printing, you need a print model, which you can download from the website, scanned with a 3D scanner or designed with CAD software. You can use any CAD software that can export models in .STL or .OBJ format. Such as Tinkercad or Fusion 360, for beginners, Thinkercad is recommended, it is very easy to use.

Model Slicing Software

We recommend that you use Cura slicing software. You need to export the designed model file in .STL or .OBJ format, then use Cura for slicing, after generating Gcode, import the Gcode file into the SD card, and then insert the SD card into the printer to print.

Other software

In addition, we also recommend that you use the Repetier Host to connect the printer directly via USB to control the Eazao. This is a great visualizer and Gcode editor, you can edit Gcode in Repetier, with built-in slicing software.
However, we recommend using Cura alone and importing the sliced ​​Gcode file into Repetier to preview your print and make manual changes if needed.

We have launched Clayon, a software dedicated to ceramic 3D printers, with the following highlights:

Leapmotion modeling: We use virtual reality technology to simulate the traditional pottery process, and the model to be printed can be generated by dancing with both hands.
