3D printing settings

The model has been sliced in the free Prusa slicer (version 2.5.2) and should allow the G-code files to be used directly on cartesian printers of 200mm x 200mm x 200mm minimum build volume.

Alternatively, the .3MF files can be loaded in Prusa and modified at user's discretion. All necessary settings are in the .3MF files. Please refer to the Printing and Assembly guide for further information.
