3D Printer Anet a8 Answered

Hi!

My name is Frank user name is (56Frank)

I just completed building Anet A8 3D printer.

If anyone out there own or uses a 3D printer, I could use some help.

I have no experience with 3D printer other than building one.

The question is:

What software would be good to start whit?

And if I like working with the 3D printer, which software can I get to learn how to draw in 3D to print objects.

Thank you

Frank G.
