Monoprice Mini in the Idea Shop Prototyping Lab

The Monoprice Mini Select v2, developed by Monoprice, is a (FDM) machine, also known as a 3D Printer. This printer is unique for the IdeaShop, in that it is not supported. The printer is merely housed in the 3D printing area, for use by students at absolutely no cost. Students are responsible for all aspects of using the machine, as laid out on this page. Please make an effort to follow the suggested settings, and try to keep your prints as short as possible. When in use, you MUST be present to watch the printer, or have a friend stay and watch the printer. It is a fire hazard.
