Preparing the .stl Files for 3D Printing

Now that we have our .stl files finished, we need to tell what ever 3D printer we are printing on the specifics of how we want them printed.

Here are those settings from the Ruiz brother's project.

If you don't have access to all these settings that's ok. Just change the settings you do have access to and the print should still come out great.

One other note. Make sure the case parts and screws are oriented face side down in your slicer program so you don't run into overhang issues.

Now you are 110% ready to print!

Once you print everything, the case snap fits together, the screws pop right into place and voila you have a Perfect Pitch Machine in a neat case!
