Anyone who wants to use any of the our 3D printers must be trained. Training is held regularly and you can find the next class on our calendar. If for some reason there isn’t one scheduled and you’d like to be trained, drop us a line by email or through Facebook. Training covers safety, how to use the 3D printer software, and procedures when using the 3D printers. It does not cover how to create files suitable for use with the 3D printer. Look for other classes on our calendar to cover that.
We ask members not to occupy all printers at once. If you do, you may be asked to abort a print when someone comes in looking to print something. Some prints can be run overnight, but please ask in advance.
If you want to know which printers are currently in use, you can visit the Confluent status page to find out which ones are busy and if so, how much time is remaining on their print.
The space has some filament on hand in assorted colors which is included in the cost of day passes and business hours memberships. We cannot guarantee any particular color for your prints. We will charge you if you intentionally use a lot of our filament. However, you are welcome to bring your own filament to use instead. We currently recommend using HATCHBOX filament with our printers. You can find it on Amazon for about $20 to $35 a kilogram.
Due to a lack of enclosures or a ventilation hood, printing is currently limited to PLA or low off-gassing filaments. Until this is resolved we do not allow printing of ABS or other similar filaments.
