3D Printing

In 2013 Team 1719 began utilizing 3D printing to make simple parts such as odd-sized washers and connectors.  We built a basic 3D printer from a kit - no simple matter putting that bad boy together. The mechanical structure is an ORD bot. The electronics and software are RepRap, specifically RAMPS 1.4. It can print things of maximum size 8” x 8” x 8” (this is 200mm x 200mm x200mm) (with some movement of limit switches).  To view the team 3D printer manual, click here.
