Hooking the Machine to a Computer

After the test print I hooked the machine to one of my lap tops.  The printer came with XYZ software for reading and slicing STL files to send to the printer as well as a driver for communication with the computer.  It took me a bit to figure out how to set up all the software because I'm using my old PC for this application and I have been using primarily MACs for the last year or two.  The printer software is only available for MAC OSX 7 or later, so be aware if you buy one of these machines.
