I am going to use it to print robot parts for my students. Anyone else using one?

Mostly 8-12 year olds and relatively cheap printers, but the kids definitely get better with the modeling and technology every year. I’m more interested in AR right now than printing in plastic, but the kids really enjoy it.

If i we’re doing it with middle school or high school I definitely would use with robotics/drones and check out the open source prosthetic programs.

Do you have any questions in particular?

When you started out, what were you using for software? I am trying out Cura.

Flashprint is their slicing software. I like it a little more than cura but they seem pretty similar to me.
