01: 3D Printing
Requires additional sign off. Maintenance beyond changing filament, leveling, or nozzle swaps is not allowed except if given explicit permission by Freeside management. Treat equipment as if it were your own and put away as or better than you found it.
- REQUIRES ADDITIONAL SIGN OFF
- Can print any and all filament up to 300c on the hotend and 110c on the bed
This is a Creality Ender 3 S1. It has a 220mm x 220mm x 250mm print volume. This machine was set aside to allow advanced users to tinker with more filaments. It is encouraged that users slice on their own computers if possible to avoid cluttering Cura in the 3D printing lab.
- Slice print on your own computer
- Upload file to the Octoprint instance at 3dpserver.local:1008
- Start print
- Find out
Basic Operational Knowledge
- How to home:
Press the Home button under the control tab in Octoprint
- How to slice and send to the printer:
You should know how to do this if you've been given the sign off
- How to abort a failed job
Press "cancel print" then "stop print" in Octoprint. There is also an Estop button in Octoprint. If needed, power off the machine with the power switch on the back left of the printer.
- How to properly remove a print once it has been completed
Remove the flexible bed and wait for it to cool. If the print is not yours, set the bed aside and do not remove the print. Replace the print bed with another.
- How to load and unload filament
Set the hotend temperature in Octoprint to the printing temperature of the currently loaded filament Press the level on the top of the extruder and pull the filament out Adjust the hotend temperature to the new filament being loaded Press the level and insert filament into the top of extruder Push some filament in such that it begins to come out of the nozzle
Advanced Operational Knowledge
You should know advanced things if you've been given sign off for this machine
Cura Preconfigured Profiles
There will be no preconfigured profiles for Chucko.
Specifications and Detailed Instructions
TODO: complete specifications, links to documentation, etc.
- You will be allowed to do whatever you see fit with this machine when getting signed off. You will be responsible for any failures you cause.
- General 3D printer safety applies.
- This machine will print higher temp filaments. Keep an eye on it especially when setting the bed to a high temperature.
Proposed Improvements - Anybody is welcome to offer help with these!
