At Eureka! Palouse, you're the Maker!  You can operate the 3d printers directly, you get to choose the materials, slicer settings, and have full control of your prints.  Our volunteers can help you on a 1 on 1 basis, and we also periodically offer 3d printing classes.

There are 3 printers at Eureka! Palouse:

The Lulzbot TAZ 5:  This machine has a large 298mm x 275mm x 250mm (11.7” x 10.8” x 9.8”) print area.  Slicing is done in the lulzbot edition of Cura.  This printer is capable of using PLA, ABS, HIPS, and Nylon filament.  It is currently configured with a 0.5mm diameter nozzle.  Some documentation on using the TAZ 5 at Eureka! is available here.

The Ekocycle: This machine only has a 152 .40 mm x 152 .40 mm x 152 .40 mm (6” x 6” x 6”) print area, but it is dual extruder.  This means you can have 2 colors or two different kinds of filament in your print.  Filament selection is limited, however.

The Flashforge Finder: This machine has a 140 mm x 140 mm x 140 H mm (5.5” X 5.5” X 5.5”) print area.  This machine produces very accurate prints.

When printing, you must be present for at least the first 5 layers of your print.  If a print is going to fail, it is most often due to build platform adhesion, which should become obvious within the first 5 layers.
