General Information

Usage Information

NEVER apply any chemicals / substances to the surface of the printer unless instructed to do so in this guide or by a RoboJackets officer.

ALWAYS remove finished parts in a timely manner. Do not leave your finished part on the printer for a full week just because that's when your next team meeting is.

What Materials Can I Print In?

We'll do our best to always have a roll of PLA in the printer, as it's our go-to 3D printing material.

The LulzBot Mini is, however, capable of printing from a wide range of materials as the heated nozzle can reach 300 degrees Celcius. Always contact the RoboJackets shop manager before attempting to print in any material besides PLA.
