Solidoodle 3




  • Print Envelope: 200mm x 200mm x 200mm (8“ x 8” x 8“)
  • ABS Extruder Temperature: 200˚
  • ABS Bed Temperature: Normally, ABS requires 105C, however, our Solidoodle temperature indicator is off by about +15C. There is a temperature chart taped to the side cover of the printer. Use it!


Repetier Host

Repetier Host is used to control the printer.

Note: There is talk of switching to Printrun. — Pete Prodoehl 2014/04/10 21:55


Slic3r is used to generate G-code from your STL files. Slic3r can be run from within Repetier Host, or you can slice your files separately and load the G-code into Repetier Host.

Note that we've had a few issues with the settings taking effect when slicing within Repetier Host, so if things don't seem to be working, try slicing outside Repetier Host.

Current Status

  • March 2019: Non-functional?
  • December 2015: Having problems with over-temperature error messages when trying to print with ABS.
    1. Note: The extruder reads 25c-30c cooler than it actually is. If you want to print at 230c (for abs) you should set the hot end to 200c.
  • June 2017: Out of commission for an extended period. Taken out of operation due to mechanical glitch which caused defects in every print.
  • June 2017: E3D V6 hotend and Titan extruder transfered to TAZ for upgrades.
