Blog post: A new printer for the space.
Super big thank you to The 3D Printer a Melbourne Local business for donating us a 3D printer. We are now the happy owners of a Wanhao Duplicator 4, our first dual extruder printer owned by the HackerSpace, also our first running on 1.75mm filament.
The very finest of sponsors. http://www.the3dprinter.com.au/
Dion and his team over at The 3D Printer reached out to us to offer the HackerSpace the D4 armed with Dual Extruders and was kind enough to throw in some extras (Such as Filament and a BuildTak surface.) We have been tinkering with it over the last few days working on aligning the dual heads for two filament printing and generally learning our way around the new beast so we can set it up for repeatable use.
It should be ready for general use by members very soon.
The 3D Printer is a Melbourne based 3D printing store, they supply a wide range of printers, filament, 3D scanners and accessories. They also cater packages for schools and organisations, so if your struggling to get started you should definitely check them out.
