Sudoroom has a TAZ3 3D printer. We won it in the LulzBot 2014 printer giveaway! It can print with many materials:
We are still getting familiar with this machine, but very excited to hack on it!
cura-lulzbot slicer is installed on the computer there, and "sudoroom white ABS" filament is defined and should work. Pronterface (red icon) is the program to use to drive the printer and run the gcode generated by cura.
Don't do the SD card thing, it won't work and is terrible.
here's a backup of the factory firmware .hex file and "source code" for our TAZ 3: https://github.com/sudoroom/taz3d
if you screw up the firmware with a weird upload or whatever, here's the factory hex file (which can be flashed using cura-lulzbot) https://devel.lulzbot.com/TAZ/3.1/software/2014Q2/firmware/marlin/Marlin_taz3.1.cpp.hex
