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

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

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
