Operation

Do not leave the printer unattended while printing Also, don't forget to turn the printer off when you are no longer using it.

Windows Drivers

Windows users will need to install drivers. For everyone else, It Just Works™. Where everyone = Linux and OSX users.

Usable Print Area

200mm x 190mm x 100mm (7.9in x 7.5in x 3.9in)

Host Software

Users of Linux, Windows, OSX will need to install the following software:

Suggested Settings

Lulzbot's slic3r config has the infill density set at 0.75. Resulting prints are very sturdy as a result, but the filament consumption and print time go up because of this. It is recommended to turn it down to 0.15 or 0.25, and to increase the number of infill shells. Doing so should have a similar surface quality, but produce a print with significantly less mass.

Other Resources

The manual is available online. A printed form of it can be found near the printer. The manual explains how to operate the printer. Read it =)

Filament

The printer is currently configured for 3mm ABS plastic. Only use this kind of plastic. Until Aeva has a chance to upgrade the extruder, PLA can damage the hot end. Additionally, the Makerbot is not configured for 3mm ABS, and so the filament for these respective printers is currently not interchangeable.

Find Something to Print

Thingiverse is a great place to find printable 3D models that other people have designed, and to publish your own.
