3D Printers

The Tulane MakerSpace uses Ultimaker 2 3d printers with a heated bed to allow for both ABS and PLA printer filament. We generally recommend using ABS filament as it allows for better finishing effects (such as smoothing), however there are advantages and disadvantages to both.

The standard slicing software favored for these printers is Cura, which allows you to arrange and size your model and set options for the printer to follow.
