History

  • 2012-07-29 - Arrived at Makerspace

Notes

  • You need to be checked out on the Replicator before you use it! There are melty bits and motors that can crush things.
  • Printing one thingy with both extruders does not work well. Best to print using only one extruder.
  • If you need to export STL's from SketchUp, a plugin can be found here.
