CREATION WORKSHOP

As PrintFlow3D is a print manager, it does not have the capacity to prepare 3D object files for printing, only to print these files loaded onto it. The file format needed for PrintFlow3D is either a .zip file (containing images and gcode) or a Creation Workshop Scene file (.cws). This is why a 1 year license of Creation Workshop has been supplied with each Liquid Crystal 10″ and Liquid Crystal HR. You can download this software which contains also all the resin profiles you need for your specified printer
