Donated in May 2019.

This is Monoprice's rebranded Wanhao Duplicator 6. Has the add on sides/top/doors, so ABS printing is a possibility, as well as other “exotic” filaments.

Upgrades/Modifications since receipt:

  • Replaced hotend/nozzle with a Micro Swiss
  • Printed a retaining clip for the extruder
  • Replaced X/Y rods that had become bent and were causing problems
  • Made a silicone hotend sock to prevent inadvertent cool down events that cancel the print in progress.

As of June 2021, we are now using this as our dedicated ABS printer, due to its enclosed nature. It is also attached via USB to our Octoprint Server, so GCODE uploading can be done via that.

Upgrades/Modifications needed:

  • Buildtak or tape on the build surface might be nice. There's a ground-in Benchy outline on the current Buildtak-like surface (it was like that when we got it!)
