3D Printing Area

There are currently four working 3D printers at VHS. Three of them are filament based, while one is resin based. Training or evidence of competency is required to use any of them. They are connected to a computer on bench E. This computer is to be used only for 3D printing, and is available to anyone who has completed the 3D printer training course.

Safety

3D printers run high temperature nozzles meant to melt plastic. Left unsupervised they could start a fire. 3D printers have moving mechanical parts which could injure someone while in motion. Keep your hands clear when in operation. 3D printers have big power supplies - 500w is common. Always unplug the printer after use and before attempting maintenance.
