==Current Status==
 
As of 12pm on 10/31/2013, the heater in the print head is broken. Hol is taking the lead on getting a new one.
 
 
 
==Hardware==
 
 
 
We currently have the following 3D printers:
 
 
 
===3D Printer - Type A Machines Series 1===
 
*[[O:5|Type A machines Series 1]]
 
 
 
===PC for 3D Printer ===
 
There is a Linux PC that connects to the 3D Printer. It has all the required software installed.
 
 
 
== Files ==
 
 
 
* smb://space/sudoroom public data/Projects/3DPrinting - Preferred place to store files
 
* Github: https://github.com/sudoroom/ComicsArtSudoRoom - same as Gittorious
 
* Gittorious  - same as github https://gitorious.org/sudoroom-art-projects
 
 
 
= Documentation =
 
 
 
==Documentation for Beginners==
 
 
 
''We currently don't have great documentation right now that covers turning on a printer, connecting it to the computer, calibration, and setting it up. We are working on that.''
 
 
 
'''The current documentation / comic on the printer bed calibration is also out of date, since we have a new printer bed.'''
 
[[User:Romyilano|Romy]] is compiling a 3D Printing for Beginners page on both SudoRoom and Noisebridge Wiki https://noisebridge.net/wiki/3DPrintBeginners
 
 
 
== Overview ==
 
 
 
''Quick and dirty overview''
 
 
 
* Turn on the 3D Printer (switch is on the back right side)
 
* Make sure the 3D Printer is connected by USB to the desktop
 
* Start the program Repetier-Host http://www.repetier.com/documentation/repetier-host/
 
* Calibrate the printer
 
* Load your STL file (model of the 3D Printout)
 
* Slice the STL file into G-Code
 
* Print
 
* Post-Print - remove from the 3D printer bed with a razor

Background: Original handwritten piece by Jae. This was the primary documentation for most of the early SudoRoom days and was writen down on a piece of paper. It's quite excellent.

==Fun Projects==
 
 
 
These are humorous one off projects started for various purposes. Sometimes I think these wiki pages need a little non mean spirited humor.
 
 
 
==='''[[3D Printer Dear Diary]]''' ===
 
* This was a humorous attempt at creating a personal teen diary for the 3D printer in hopes that more people would get engaged and participate. It didn't work. I hope I didn't offend anyone by suggesting our type a machine is a brony.
