 +==== Basic Overview ====
 +  * Use favorite CAD program to generate an STL file (in millimetres)
 +  * Load CAD file into Repetier-Host (on SpaceBox, or available here: http://www.solidoodle.com/how-to-2/how-to-install-software/)
 +  * Choose resolution & slice with Slic3r (within Repetier-Host) 
 +    * If you get warnings or errors while slicing, or if the toolpath doesn't look right after slicing, try running the STL through http://cloud.netfabb.com/
 +  * Print!
