We supply 1.75mm PLA filament for the UP Box 3D printers and this is the only filament accepted for use.
Preparing your file for printing with Netfabb
You are responsible for ensuring that a file is printable.
To make sure your 3D models print error-free, you need to check that they are watertight and there are no mesh errors. There are various mesh repair applications available such as Meshmixer, Blender and Meshlab, but we use Netfabb. Ask a Makerspace technician if you have any queries.
