FAQ > 3D Printing

I have created my design in SelfCAD and now I want to print it. What printing material or polymer should I use in the 3D printer?

Check out our blog to learn more about printing materials.

How do I know if my design is printable?

We have created a special function known as ‘Magic Fix’ to help you in this regard. Simply select the object or objects you want to print, and apply the Magic Fix function. SelfCAD will then prepare your object for flawless printing. For example, Magic Fix will repair faults in manifolds, flipped faces, poor boundary edges, and erroneously intersecting objects.

I cannot find my 3D printer on the list. How do I add a custom 3D printer?

It's best to directly ask us to add it via You'll be able to use your printer in less than a day!

If you'd like to make your own 3D printer profile, go to SelfCAD Editor -> 3D Print.

And click 'Open profile editor'.
