Starting a print
Composer is the bridge between design software & Asiga 3D printers.
Use Composer to prepare parts for 3D printing including nesting, scaling, positioning, supporting & more.
Composer is compatible with a range of file formats including:
Setting up your first print in Composer
Watch the below video to learn about starting a new print in Composer.
Before starting a new print ensure you have correctly set up your printer.
It is essential that your printer is correctly set up before starting a print to avoid failures.
Access printer via web interface
The printer’s web interface allows you to interact with the printer from the comfort of your desk.
A crucial step in starting a print is ensuring the material is stirred.
Pigments in resin will settle over time making this such an important step.
Note: the video below shows the process on a MAX, but it is identical on PRO 4K.
