How to print 3D files with HP printer software
Posted On July 24, 2021
With 3D printing software, you can print objects that are just a bit too complicated to be printed in a standard printer.
But with HP printers, you’re not limited to 3D designs; you can even print a physical object like a human being.
Here are some steps to help you print your own 3D printed body.
If you’re looking for more advanced ways to print your 3D printer, check out our 3D Printables section.
If you want to see what it looks like, watch the video below.
Step 1: Choose a 3D modelThe first thing you need to do is choose the design for your 3Ds printable body.
We’re going to print a human head from the above video, but you can make your own design using the free Shapeways 3D Modeler app, available for Android and iPhone.
Step 2: Build your 3d modelYou’ll need to build a physical 3D object, like the head, body, or face, by creating a blueprint.
To create a 3d object, you’ll use a 3DS Max or 3DS MAX Pro 3D Printer software.
The 3DS Maker is an open source 3D software that lets you print objects from your computer.
Step 3: Print the objectStep 3 is where you’ll print your printable 3D printable.
You’ll need a printer, a print bed, and a nozzle.
There are three ways to use the 3DS Printer app to print with 3D printers:On a computer, open the 3ds printables app from the Home screen.
Choose your printer from the menu bar.
Select a 3ds printer to print.
The 3DS printer app displays the printer settings.
In the options menu, choose “Print at Home.”

On the desktop, open 3ds make or 3ds max.
Select the printer to create.
The printer app opens to a preview of your print.
It may take a few seconds for the 3D file to be created.
Step 4: Print your 3DP printableNow that your 3DR printable has been printed, it’s time to print it.
To print your printed object, follow the steps below:Open the 3d printables application from the home screen.
In the 3DP printer app, click the menu button to select “Print to” to create a new 3D design.
Step 5: Print and share your print on social mediaYou’ll see a button in the bottom-right corner that allows you to print to Facebook, Twitter, or any other social network.
You’ll be prompted to share your 3ds design, which you can do by clicking on the share icon in the 3rd row of the print menu.
When you print, you may see the object’s digital file name printed in the upper-left corner of the screen.
