|Mendel90 3D printer|
|Print area||20cm x 20cm x 20cm|
There are two 3D printers at Hacklab. Mendel90 (the black one) and Prenta B1.25 (the aluminium extrusion one).
3D printers are fairly easy to use once you get the basic idea sorted out. You should ask for guidance on your first use.
There is material fee for using the printers. With traditional materials (ABS, PLA) it is 0,30€ per starting 10 gram of finished print. Fairly cheap that is. Usually prints cost something around 1 euro unless you are printing something big.
Good idea is to read some resources and familiarise with concept
