✅ making your design available with suggestions for material, support, infill, and more
❌ "Hi I'm a designer I designed a thing here's an STL file!"



I get it when folks who are new to the hobby may not yet realize how important that info can be. They'll get there. 👍🏼

I'm mostly griping about the kids in design colleges who, let's be honest, probably handed the STL to their printing buddy or someone in their library's maker space and left it to THOSE unsung folks to create an Actual Thing.


Both steps, design and slicing, require knowledge, time, and often some experimentation.

If you don't include info on both, you're only giving half the instructions.
