Procedure for Long 3D Print Job


#1

So, I’ve done the design in OnShape, exported to .stl, imported to the Makerbot software, done the settings tweaks and the time estimate is given as 9 hours plus.

What the process for setting off a job like this on the 'space printer? I’ll be in tonight, but I’m not sure overnight printing jobs are possible at the moment, are they?

Hi,

There is no specific proceedure, though I should point out that the “new” 3D printer is out of order at the moment. We have had print jobs run overnight though, of course there is a risk that if the print starts to go wrong there will be no one there to stop it.

There are a few of us in tonight so we should be able to sort something out for you.
