Post by Danjukes84 »

Hi there I’ve just brought a 3D Printer but I’m having problems with software

Congratulations!

It may help if you advised the printer type. Whilst slicers are pretty generic, some printers can be fussy.

I've never used an ender, however the general consensus seems positive.

I can't unfortunately help with Mac, however Cura is available for Mac my use of the Windows version gives me positive vibes, and being free that would be a good start:

I suggest you find a forum for your needs as you will get lots of help for Cura and the Ender.

Thank you for getting back to me...
I’ve tried Cura but the versions that’s I’ve downloaded don’t support Mac OS X 10.6.8
That seems to be the issue ?

There is a download link on the URL page I gave, and on the download page is a version for Mac OS. I'm afraid I can't help much in relation to the Mac.
