What size can we print

The bigger an item the longer it takes to print

The Maximum Print Area is 250 x 210 x 210 mm. In pratice making something even close to that size would take 40 hours plus to print so breaking down your project into components and considering mixing with other materials.

How long does it take?

It can take hours to print complicated large objects. We generally print things within 1 - 6 hours to keep office hours so we can keep track of the print progreess. If it’s a longer print the club can do these off site
