404: Getting the part out as slices for additive manufacturing

Summary:

nTop can generate design complexity that is challenging to capture or communicate with mesh or CAD formats. Sometimes the most efficient strategy is to export data directly to manufacturing equipment. This tutorial video explains how to generate slices and export them as a CLI file, the most common format for layer-based systems.
