Good news FabLabers. The 3D printers are now operational at the new space. If you have completed the re-orientation and have used the MakeICT 3D printers and know how things are set up, feel free to starting making some prints. If you haven’t used our printers before, we will get some classes going soon.
At this time the Prusa, CR-10, and Ultamaker are set up and should be operational. The large Creality Ender 5 printer is a new donation to the space and that has not yet been set up. If someone wants to take that on, feel free to do so.
The computer that has the slicer and network access to the printers is set up on the gray table in the middle of the room.
At the moment we are pretty low on filament. I’ll be getting that stocked up as soon as possible too. The filament rolls are on the shelves in the SW corner of the room. Remember that we do ask that you help us cover the expense of filament by weighing your finished print and contributing 4 cents per gram in the orange jar on the the printer table. There is a postage scale on the table as well.
If you have any problems with the printers, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post here on the forum.
Thanks everyone for your patience as we get things set up at the new space. Other equipment will be operational soon.
