OverviewThe 3D Touch (formerly the BFB 3000 Plus) printer is a legacy printer from 3DSystems/Cubify. The manuals and specifications can be seen here on the Cubify site, but for reference:
Before using the printer you must go through the Basic Training. It takes less than 30 minutes, so no excuses.
Detailed instructions are provided in the training, which focuses mainly on proper use of the software to get good results.
The printer can print in either:
+Stuff Legos are made out of. Tough.
+Higher melting point
- Prone to warping or deforming when not printed on a heated bed
- Smellier when printing
- Not food-safe
+Smells kind of like popcorn when printed
+Food safe, within reason
+Faster print times
- Less Sturdy
- Lower melting temp (eg summertime heat can deform)
We have both kinds of filament on-hand, and the software can easily be configured (with a simple drop-down selection) to use either kind for a specific print.
This section will be expanded to show pictures of how different print options affect the resulting print quality.
