This machine is an FDM style 3D printer. It uses a solid plastic filament to build models by melting the filament and depositing it onto the bed of the machine layer by layer.
The completion of MACCLab Orientation and Intro to 3D Printing is required to use this machine. Those with previous Ultimaker 3D printing experience who believe they are proficient in using this machine can opt for a private proficiency test with a qualified instructor.
The cost of the print is determined by the weight of the material used. Bring your finished print to the sign in desk for weighing and payment.
