Objects are the things that you wish to print on your 3D printer. You can make your own object, using the PolarCloud creation software, simply by clicking on the Create button in the upper right corner. Or you can use an existing .stl file to create an object, just click on the Upload button in the upper right corner. Or, if you are feeling especially creative, you can take two existing objects, and merge them together, using the Merge function on the PolarCloud creation software. Use this feature to add your name, or any text such as "#1 Dad!" to customize any object you wish.
Each object consists of a name and a .stl file. The .stl file is like the recipe that the 3D printer uses to create your object. All 3D printers use the same file format, so feel free to re-use or share your .stl files with your friends, regardless of printer type. You can also add a description to your object, explaining any nuances of how the object may be scaled or configured to print. And you can include license or legal rights information in the description as well.
Once you have created an object, you are the manager of that object. You are the only one who is able to edit or change that particular object. You can make other people managers as well (as long as they have collected that object to their account). Once they become a manager, then they too will be able to edit or change the object.
