This is our newest 3D printer. It can print 2 colors or materials at once with its dual extruders. This means you have more possibilities: dissolvable support, infused materials, bicolored products, or even "invisible ink" messages. You can print about a 8.5 x 8.5 x 8 inch product on it. The printer is for education and prototyping purposes and can be used to make tools, repair parts, toys etc.
1. Please watch the videos below. These videos will get you acquainted with the machine.
2. Take the short quiz.Feel free to take it until you get 100%. 3. Sign up for a practice session. We will show you how to use our machine step by step, and let you practice printing. Find something small to practice with on thingiverse.com.
4. Once you feel confident on using the printer, we will "certify" you. You will need to prove you can safely and independently follow a checklist to print something from start to finish
5. You can now use the printer independently. Our current "Independent times" are Tuesdays 12-5pm. You must still schedule in advance, and children under 16 must still have a parent with them. Happy printing!
