We use ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) filament, which is an oil-based plastic. This is a strong, sturdy material to print your request.
Maximum printing size: 152 x 152 x 203 mm (6 x 6 x 8 in). Layers must be at least 0.1 mm thick (0.020 in). We recommend you build your object in millimeters or convert to millimeters prior to submitting your request.
Software: We suggest your download the free and easy to use Cura software to determine how long your file will take to print prior to requesting time. https://www.lulzbot.com/content/downloads
Image Format and multiple parts: Export your model as a stereo lithography file, with an STL extension (.stl).
Colors: Black, Blue, Purple, Red, Silver, Yellow, Orange, Green, and White
Supports and Raft: Supporting structures are sometimes needed if the design includes a section that overhangs from the base. Raft is another means of support for the 3d print object; it will be added to the design to help it adhere to the printer bed.
NOTE: Maximum sizes for a single print is 152 x 152 x 203 mm (6 x 6 x 8 in). However, printing cannot exceed your booking time. We have a combination of printing time slots you can choose from (2 hours, 3 hours and 5 hours)
