    Greetings All,
    I just ordered my new 3D printer, been looking at getting one for over a year now. I've already used SketchUp to make my first model. As soon as the printer gets here, I get to test my 3D drawing skills.

    I do have a couple general questions about the printer and operation.
    1. When I have an object to print, does the printer automatically leave it hollow, support fill, or solid fill? Or is that something I'll have to setup in the drawing?
    2. Are support structures added in or is that something else I need to draw in?

    Those are either defined by the model or can be done by the slicer you choose to use.
