Mirror w/ Cloud Print

Hi all!  My classroom has a Sketch printer.  We use cloud print (I wish I could use Cura).  Is there a way to mirror a stl file with cloud print?

 

Thanks!

 

I could download another program, but my school computer doesn't allow me to install most apps without an admin password ☹️

    This function does not appear to be in Cloud Print at this time.
    I have let the teams know of the feedback!

    An option that does not requite installing any software would be to use Tinkercad.
    You could upload your STL to Tinkercad directly then mirror it there.
    Tinkercad would from there allow you to push the mirrored STL directly into Cloud Print.

    It sounds like you encountered a challenge with Tinker due to the complexity of the STL file, but you found a workaround by using another program to create the mirror and successfully sent it through. Great job problem-solving, and you're welcome! If you have any more questions or run into other issues, feel free to ask for assistance. Happy printing!

    Hello! If you're using a Sketch printer with cloud print and seeking to mirror an STL file, it might be challenging directly through cloud print.😊 However, given the restrictions on installing additional programs, you could explore online tools that offer mirroring functionality for STL files without requiring installation.😊 Simply search for "online STL mirroring tool"🕢 and upload your file to mirror it before using cloud print. This way, you can achieve the desired result without the need for additional software installations on your school computer.😇
