3D printers can make plastic parts with decent accuracy. Our printers print with PLA, a popular plastic that is also biodegradable. Printers are relatively cheap to use, and are super easy to get started with!
We have three models of printers. Our four Flashforge Finders are easy to use and have a build volume of 5.5″ by 5.5″ by 5.5″. Our eight Flashforge Creator Pros have a build volume of 8.9″ 5.8″ by 5.9″ and have a heated bed that helps larger prints adhere to the bed while printing. Our Flashforge printers print with 1.75 mm nominal filament, and prints can be prepared in Flashprint.
We have two Ultimaker 2+‘s, one regular and one Extended+. Ultimaker printers can print with finer resolution but this may take longer. Ultimaker printers print with 3 mm nominal filament, and prints can be prepared in Cura.
