Lab 3D Printers

FamiLAB has a few members who are interested in 3D printing and the community surrounding it. Since most of the consumer-level 3D printers (RepRap, MakerBot, etc.) use the same methods of operation, we help each other out in getting our machines up and running, and keeping them operational. We are looking into holding some sort of meetings for those interested in the FDM method of 3D printing, or who would like to print parts they have designed. For now, here is a list of members who have 3D printers or are in the process of building them:

BreepBroop

Chorca

Chorca originally joined FamiLAB after working with Mack to produce sets of RepRap parts. He has a standard Mendel printer, BreepBroop.

BreepBroop

BreepBroop (nickname) is a standard RepRap Mendel design 3D FDM printer. Chorca is currently working on rebuilding it with newer components.



Digitalman2112

Ian - Digitalman2112 has built a MakerGear Prusa-style RepRap Mendel named Phineas.

Phineas

Phineas (nickname) was built from a a MakerGear Prusa Mendel Kit. Digitalman2112 RepRap has printed some small basic objects, but requires work to get fully operational. He plans to get it fully up and running in the coming weeks. Ian documented his build over on his RaisingGeeks blog.

Mack

Mack has a MakerBot CupCake 3D printer. It is a low serial # - and he's proud of it :) He originally purchased it to build the parts for a RepRap, which he did, however, he is now looking to a newer version to build.

MackerBot

Mackerbot (nickname) is a slightly modified MakerBot Cupcake printer. It has had it's Gen 2 extruder replaced with a Wade's extruder, and the hot end is a MakerGear Power Resistor. It uses modified Stepper Driver 3.0's, and has a TechZone extruder controller. Mack is currently in the process of installing a Low Rider kit to improve the build height capabilities.

Da3v

Da3v has a Makerbot too...we don't know if it has a name, but when he edits this page, we will find out :) Da3v has built a Prusa Mendel which is close to working properly, if not already is.

Makerbot

Da3v's makerbot is...


Prusa Mendel

Da3v's machine is mostly working at this point, more information about it to be filled in later by him.
