I use a mac. How do I export a file from Autodesk to Cura for printing on a Printrbot.

Autodesk can export these file types:

IGES (.igs .iges)

SAT (.sat)

SMT (.smt)

STEP ( .stp .step)

Archive Files (.f3d)

Curt uses .stl files ???

    Autodesk has a whole bunch of different products that could be used for 3D printing - from TinkerCAD, 123 Design, Fusion360, Maya, Inventor, AutoCAD etc. pp.

    Which Autodesk Software are you using?

    Here are 4 Autodesk products i am using:

    a) Fusion 360: use the Make > 3D Print from the Toolbar, uncheck "Send to 3D Print Utility" to save to STL - or try if you can send to your slicer as "Custom" utility.

    b) 123 Design: Export to 3D > STL or: select the part and click "Export Selection"

    c) TinkerCAD: File > Download for 3D Printing

    d) MeshMixer: File > Export
