With the increase of technology in schools, there are an increasing amount of 3D printers! Some schools even have 3D printing labs!!
Congratulations to Greenport High School technology teacher Michael Davies for creating their High School 3D printing lab for his students! IT-Works helped supply some of the LulzBot 3D printers. It is great to see kids working with and creating cool things with 3D printers!
Work continues on the build of a pink Lulzbot Mini 3D printer. Nearly all the parts are printed, and the chassis has been refinished.
Because of Lulzbot’s open source approach, you own your printer, and you can build modify, experiment and repair it yourself!
If you’d like to DIY, ItWorks 3D Print can help you with the Lulzbot Mini Parts you need.
Jodi here! I know it seems like an absurd amount of pink and you are correct! It really is a little overboard, but I love it! I have four boys, five if you include Jamie, so a girls gotta mix in a little bit of pink here and there! It is however doubtful that the pink will deter any of them from using my printer. 😉
Cerakote looks like it will work as a durable over-finish on the chassis. We’re using “prison pink” Thanks to Dustin of the hot new local filament manufacturerChroma Strand Labs for this finish. Look for Chroma Strand’s new Inova filament on our site ItWorks3D
Even the bed plate is getting refinished. Now for much re-tapping and uncoating the areas that need to make electrical contact for the Mini’s auto-leveling system. The Ninjaflex bed corners will probably be done in white with the new Mini Flexistruder V2
