Revision as of 19:35, 10 October 2018

We have two 3D printers, with a large volume printer being worked on.

Equipment

Hull

Hull is a Lulzbot Mini Standard.

Crump

Crump is a Lulzbot Mini Flexystruder.

Cost

Using the printers costs £1.50/hour of printing + 50p/meter of filament. Octoprint gives you both of these.

Training

Training is required. There is a cost of £5 to be trained (waived if trained on the old printer), payable to the trainer.

Current trainer/maintainers are: Maheemal, tgreer (Thomas, not 'Tom')

The Lulzbot printers use ACnode to verify that you have been trained. Please do not share access to any untrained individuals as you will lose your access as well.

Using ACnode

ACnode is our access control system for the 3D Printers, it consists of an RFID card reader (under the Hackspace sticker), a Launchpad to control it, an RGB light-up button and a connection to an authorised members database. To use it, place your membership card on top of the Hackspace sticker and the ACnode will activate if you are a trained member.

ACnode Colours

Blue: In Service
Red: Out of Order
Green: Active (using a trained users card)
Yellow: Active (using a maintainers card)

Setting the 3D Printer out of order

  1. Place your card on the ACnode so it activates and turns green
  2. Press the button on the front once, it should flash red
  3. Press again and keep it held for a second or two, then release
  4. After a moment the button should turn red, that particular 3D Printer is now out of order

Logging
