Hi @Snyder1218,

Thanks for reaching out.

You can export your 3D design as .OBJ or .STL file and prepare them for 3D printing using software such as Cura (https://ultimaker.com/en/products/ultimaker-cura-software) or MeshMixer (http://www.meshmixer.com/download.html).

In these type of software, you can control the scale, thickness and other parameters of the 3D object before 3D printing it.

Hope that helps.

I was looking to print a two diamensional drawing on my I Inkjet printer. I am using a iPad Pro and do not want buy a special printer or add another software package. Can the program export a PDF file?

Hi @Snyder1218,

In uMake, you can export the drawing as a photo (.PNG) and then print it directly from your iPad using the Photos app.

Thanks,

Adding dimensions to the document is on our roadmap. It’s prioritized high on our list.
