Consumables

Filament currently available in lab:

  • PLA
  • ABS

Please check with the Computer Lab Host to ensure that materials appropriate for your project are available. If you need to work with something different, run materials that you are bringing in by the Computer Lab Host prior to use.

Software to Create Designs

  • SketchUp: Simple 3D modeller
  • SculptGL: web-based 3D modeller based on "sculpting"
  • OnShape: web-based parametric solid modeller
  • OpenSCAD: CAD scripting language

Software to Print Designs

Physical Properties

  • Printable dimensions: X 200, Y 200, Z 270
  • Center: X 100, Y 100
  • Number of extruders: 1
  • Filament diameter: 1.75mm
  • Nozzle diameter: 0.4mm
  • Maximum hotend temperature: 245C
  • Maximum bed temperature: 120C

G-code

BED AUTO-CALIBRATION MUST BE DONE BEFORE PRINTING! Use the following G-code to do this.

Replace <BED> with the bed temperature, <EXT> with the extruder number, 0, and <TEMP> with the hotend temperature.

; Set desired bed temperature; no wait.
M140 S<BED>

; Set desired extruder & temperature; no wait.
T<EXT>
M104 S<TEMP>

; Home X/Y
G28 X0 Y0
; Seek to the bed; G29 will only go a certain amount.
G28 Z0
; Auto-calibrate bed
G29

; [mm] mode
G21
; absolute mode
G90

; Raise the extruder a bit
G1 Z15

; Wait for the bed to reach temp.
M190 S<BED>
; Wait for the extruder to reach temp.
M109 S<TEMP>

Material Settings

  • PLA: 185C hotend + 50C bed seems to work fine for most PLA
Use glue stick for adhesion, metal spatula to remove part.
  • ABS: Unknown.
  • Nylon: Unknown.
  • Clean the bed frequently, at least between every 5 prints with wet paper towels for best adhesion.

Cura Settings

According to Dry Erase:

  • Print Temp: 200
  • Bed Temp: 60
  • Speed:80mm/s

is this correct?

Z-Probe information

The Z-Probe is a modified optical interrupter that reflects a small IR spot off the glass bed, which is picked up by the photodiode.
