3D Printing

Area Captains: Peter Liethen, Rob Smeaton

Email: 3dprinting@thebodgery.org

There is an introduction to 3D printing called “3D Printing 101” that you can find here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1L4aX1oNZq0MgHx-fUiHGoEfWh8zdeU2Z/view

These are the printers we own, and will train you to use.

All these 3D printers, and what’s unique about the use of each one, can be found at the end of this presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1wGjaNjzRAw9JA2sqPl3q3w_RRvoSv04j/view

Materials Only 3 filament types are used at The Bodgery:

  • PLA (or its derivative, PLA+ or Pro)
  • PETG
  • TPU

All printers use filament diameter 1.75mm If you want to print a different material on our printers, you MUST contact an area captain first. You can reach us at email 3dprinting@thebodgery.org, or post your request on Slack in the #3d-printing channel.

Cost

  • $0.06/g if you use filament supplied by The Bodgery;
  • $0.03/g if you use your own.
  • Weigh your print(s) on the provided scale and either:
    • Insert the cash for it in the payment box, or
    • Send a payment through PayPal to: treasurer@thebodgery.org and note that it's for 3D filament.

Colors: We try to keep a variety of colors of each filament type on hand. We will not buy filament on request, except when we are making a replenishment order. When that occurs, we ask on Slack if specific colors are desired.
