Craftbot XL

  • 30x20x44cm Print Bed
  • Single Material Extruder
  • 60mm/s Print Speed

Software: While any slicing software can be used, we recommend using Craftware which features a simple drag and drop interface. With Craftware, any CAD program can be used to create an .STL file for printing. You can also use .STL files from any popular share sites such as Thingiverse. Please note that size, detail, and infill can cause your print to take a very long time. We do have a limit on print length and you are required to monitor your print. 

Compatible Materials: The Ingram Hall Makerspace will only provide PLA, a lightweight, biodegradable, and non-toxic plastic. You may bring your own filament but here may be limitations as to which printers you may use depending on your material.
