Files for my Ultimaker 2go

Far, far, far from being an expert.  I have successfully printed images from the supplied SD card.

 

How do I get sample images off-line and make it available to my machine?

There are about 1 million models you can download from thingiverse.com.  Or you can design your own model in CAD and save your model as an STL file.

 

Then you need to slice the model.  I recommend the latest version of Cura.  Slicing converts the STL to gcode file and then you put the gcode file on the SD card to print it.

A little more detail -

1) download STL file(s) from thingiverse.

2) open the file in cura

3) Slice it.  Check the results in cura to make sure it looks correct (ALWAYS CHECK).  Often part of the model won't slice at all.

4) Save - cura saves the result as a ".gcode" file.

5) Copy the gcode file to an SD card

6) Put the SD card in the um2go

 

There's lots of sub steps.  If you have used computers a lot and know how to download you should understand most of the sub steps.
