We have too many printers! (Such a problem to have). The Replicator 2x was donated a few years ago and has been used a few times by members of the space.
This is an enclosed printer, and thus suitable for printing ABS.
We’ve had the following issues:
- Levelling the bed
- Getting ABS to stick to the bed
- There is a second extruder (for multi-colour or support material) this is not attached as the nozzles were different heights off the bed
Note: This can’t be used with open-source software, requires Windows-only Makerbot software to slice models, which are transferred to the printer using an SD card.
Makerbot still sell these at ridiculous sounding prices - bids for this one £150 ono. (members only initially)
