After login, you would be able to download simplify3d software.

Install Simplify3D

  • After login, Download latest software Version from here.
  • Install simplify3D software
  • Open the software.


Opening for first time.

  • Use your Username and Password same as above.
  • Press Cancel when the configuration assistant pops-up.

Download Material Printing Profiles (.fff files)

Make sure to download the latest version of profiles from [<>]

Download profile for the material that you are going to print. The Manu Easy 3D Printer supports currently Cura and Simplify3D Software.

Select the folder for Simplify3D and download the .fff profiles the correct material.
Make sure to use the correct profile for the filament that is used.

Import Material slicing profiles (FFF)

  • Click on “Import FFF profile”.
  • Choose downloaded profile and import the profile.

Important: Make sure to use correct slicing profile. Wrong profile may cause the printer to crash and potentially break your 3D print/ printer.

Import your STL file

  • Press the Import button to import your STL file.
  • Locate your file and open it.
  • The model will appear on the main page of simplify3d.

Choose the profile

  • Edit process 1
    • Add one process if there are none.
    • Simplify3D processes can be used to change settings while printing. (see advanced tutorial)
  • Select Profile
    • Choose the profile for the material you are printing.
    • If you do changes like disable/enable supports then click “Update Profile” to save the changes.

Check carefully that you have the right profile. Choosing the wrong profile can cause a damage on your print or printer!

Profile setting

  • Enable support if your model has overhang more than 50 degree.
  • Set the infill percentage if needed.
  • Press OK to continue.

If you need to customize any settings, click “Show Advanced”. Some usual modifications are for example Support type: Everywhere or Build platform only.
Perimeters (walls) count can be increased to have more strength. See advanced tutorial for more info.

Make sure to rotate the part so it has a stable first layer to start with.
-> Double click the part to open side panel on right. From there position, scale and rotation modifications can be done.
Press “Prepare to print” when you have model and setting profile ready.

Save g-code

  • Check your model on preview
    • You can check your model by layer to layer.
    • Slide the layers bar on bottom to view individual layers and to troubleshoot if there is any problems.
  • Choose Toolpaths to Disk.
  • Save the created g-code
  • The g-code file is later sent to the printer.

How 3D Printing works?

  1. Create 3D Model: 3D Model can be created using CAD software like Autodesk Fusion 360, Solidworks and others. Printer uses STL file format. Or, ready 3D Models can be also downloaded from [<>, <>] for free.
  2. Slicing 3D Model After importing STL file (3D Model) to the slicing software, it is prepared (gcode, movement commands) to use in the 3D Printer.
  3. 3D Printing Browse the gcode file (prepared file from slicing software) and click to print.
  4. 3D Model ready to use When printing is ready, remove the part from the machine. Post-processing may be required depending on geometry (supports).

About the slicing process

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing as it's often called, is a manufacturing process that has been developing steadily since 1984.

Invented by Charles (Chuck) Hull in 1983, the process allows three-dimensional objects to be printed from digital data.

3D printing (or additive manufacturing) is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file.

The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive 2D layers of materials, layer by layer until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.

3D printing is a bit like making a loaf of bread in reverse. imagine baking each individual slices of bread and then gluing them together into a whole loaf (as opposed to making a whole loaf and then slicing it, like a baker does).

3D printing is the process of creating an object, from thousands of tiny slices; slice by slice.

About creating STL files

  • You can export 3D Models in .STL file format in almost any 3D Modeling software like Solidworks.
  • Its important to check the stl export file properties, such as angular tolerances and deviation (we recommend 0.05mm deviation and 3 degrees or less for high quality parts.)
  • Another option is to download ready stl file directly from free websites such as [<>, <>, <>.]
