Shared Ultimakers / 3D printers in a Makerspace/FabLab - how to set it up?

Recommended Posts

How are you guys that are part of fab labs/hackspaces dealing with the noise from your 3D printers? My Ultimaker is quite noisy for some models.

We're planning for where and how to put about 5-10 3D printers in our new Stockholm Makerspace. Hopefully we'll have a couple of Ultimakers there and also some others.

We'd like to have access to power / USB and that it should be fairly easy to physically access the printers when needed. Also mounting of cameras etc.

We're thinking about constructing sections sealed with acrylic see-through plastic together with sound-proofing material.

But I gather there are others out there to take inspiration and learn from, please share!

Also, for shared 3D printers - how do you book / charge 3D print time so that people are happy?

Thanks,

Daniel

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
