All of our printers use 1.75mm filament.



We've sort of standardized on Creality printers. This isn't by policy, but Creality's printers are generally pretty decent and inexpensive compared to other brands.

  • Creality Ender 5 S1 (with Sonic Pad and enclosure)
  • Creality Ender 5 (with BLTouch)
  • Creality Ender 3 Pro (× 2)

We also have several other printers that need some amount of T.L.C. before they're usable. We may be willing to let these go to a good home if anyone were to ask nicely enough.

Set up BLTouch in Cura

Our Ender 5 has a BLTouch bed probe installed which needs to be enabled in the printer profile in Cura. After adding the Ender 5 printer, open the machine settings. After the G28 command, add a G29 to enable the bed probe at the start of each print.
