Hello, guys today in this post I will tell you how you can print mobile photo using 3d printer. If you want to know the full process of print 2d picture in 3D printer then this article is for you.

Before I tell you the main point of this printing process of a 3D printer, I would like to explain in detail for better understanding.

Most people do not know about the 3D file format like

  • .STL
  • .OBJ
  • .FBX
  • .DAE
  • .3DS
  • .IGES
  • .STEP

All of these is the popular 3D file format. this means these are the extension file name of the 3D model.

But our 3d printer dies not able to print this file format directly. To print any 3D designed model with a 3D printer first of all you have to convert the 3D file format(Which I mentioned in the above) into gcode.

We have use slice software like CURA to convert 3D file format into gcode. Many 3D Printer manufacturing company have their own slice software like reality slicer. It depends on you which slicer software you will use.
