We will be using the roof truss we modeled in Chapter 2, 3D Modeling Software, and going through the necessary steps in preparation for our first print.
To begin with, let's open MakerWare and add

Sometimes, based on how we have designed the model when we add a file to the build platform, we will be prompted with the pop up shown in the following screenshot.
