Print from card

How do you add files to your SD card to print saved models? I tried adding STL files to the folder along with the provided sample file. It only gives me the choice of printing the sample. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Deacon,
you can't directly adding stl files into SD card, you need use xyzware open stl file first, choose proper settings, then click "export" button export a .3w file

then you can put .3w file into SD card, printer can only read .3w files.
