The 3D printing system available in the DiSCO is the Ultimaker 2 GO. Paired with Ultimaker Cura, the software used to prepare files for the printer, users can undertake a wide range of projects. Additionally the equipment is free to use! There are two printers available, one in the Maker Space, and one in the 3D workroom. The 3D workroom may be booked for use through the library appointments site.
Cura may also be downloaded off the Ultimaker Website.
Below is a guide on how to use the Cura Software with the printer.
Blender is available on all DiSCO computers. If it is not found, it may be installed from the Managed Software Center. SketchUp and Sculptris can be downloaded for free.
