-====== Original Prusa i3 MK2 (CURRENTLY NOT IN LAB)====== 
- 
-===== Costs ===== 
- 
-^Material^Members/​funders^Non-members^ 
-|PLA|£0.30/​m|£4/​hour| 
- 
-===== Materials ===== 
- 
-See [[3dprinters#​Approved filaments]] 
- 
-The printer can be used for printing with //PLA// or //PETG// filament, with a //1.75mm// diameter.\\ 
-Other filaments have to be discussed on the mailing list. If you wish to print with ABS then additional ventilation will be required to deal with styrene fumes. 
- 
-//TPU// or //TPE// flexible filaments (such as NinjaFlex) may be used but require use of talcum powder or painters tape on the PEI print surface.\\ 
-__PEI SHEET WILL GET DAMAGED IN CASE YOU PRINT TPU DIRECTLY ON IT!!!__ 
- 
-Use of your own filament is only allowed with a previous discussion with other members to prevent usage of low quality or non-suitable filament. 
- 
-===== Rules ===== 
- 
-  * Do not hack. The 3D printer is a tool, not a project. (This includes installing custom firmware or anything that you may consider **upgrading**) 
-  * Use material supplied by the lab. 
-  * If you want to use your own material, it must be of good quality and approved before use (post to the members list). 
-  * If you want to use ABS (or other materials which produce fumes) you must relocate the printer to somewhere with good ventilation,​ flush out the ABS after use and return the printer to its normal place. 
-  * Wait for the bed to cool before attempting to remove a print 
-  * Send an email to the mailing list in advance before doing a long print 
-  * Do not use sharp tools to remove a print from the bed. You could damage the PEI sheet. 
-  * Do not user gcode generated for other printers on this printer 
- 
-===== Loan rules ==== 
- 
-As the owner of the printer David reserves the right to take the printer out of the lab for few days or print really long prints.\\ 
-It's unlikely this will ever happen without a prior warning on the mailing list. Unless it's a case of dire printing emergency!!! 
- 
-===== Software ===== 
- 
-You can use two different slicers with the Prusa. 
- 
-  * [[https://​www.prusa3d.com/​slic3r-prusa-edition/​|Slic3r]] - Slic3r Prusa edition is the more advanced version that allows a lot more control but can be overwhelming for a new user. 
- 
-  * [[https://​prusacontrol.org/​|PrusaControl]] - PrusaControl is a very simple slicer that is great for beginners. 
- 
- 
-If you wish to use a different slicer you can ask on the mailing list. But unless you have a very good reason to use a different one it's advised to stick with the listed options. 
- 
-===== Calibration ===== 
- 
-The Prusa MK2 will automatically calibrate before every print.\\ 
-Do not use the calibration option on your own without a previous discussion on the mailing list. 
- 
-===== Firmware ===== 
- 
-Printer is using an unmodified version of the the original Prusa MK2 firmware. We have no intention of changing this. 
- 
-===== Printing Instructions ===== 
- 
-Unless you are experienced with 3D printing it is highly recommended that you ask on the mailing list for help with your first few prints. 
- 
-If you want some guidance here is a perfect quick start guide from Prusa Research: https://​www.prusa3d.com/​new-user-mk2s/​ 
- 
-David is politely asking that you train yourself on the Ultimaker 2 before touching his printer.
