You need a CAD program to design your project and a slicer to convert it into something the printer can use.
- OpenSCAD (Free) - a bit different to other CAD programs, OpenSCAD is a functional programming language whose output is a 3D drawing. If you have problems thinking visually or working with 3D tools with a mouse but can describe what you want (like "make a box, then cut off one corner and add a cylinder") then OpenSCAD might be worth trying!
- Know Only 10 Things to be Dangerous in OpenSCAD can get you started quickly.
- Slic3r (Free) - simple slicer tool but unfortunately does not currently support the Flashprint machine well. (It seems solvable as it's just misaligning the bed when it starts printing. If you figure this out please update!)
