 Currently all of HSBNE'​s 3D printers have Octoprint set up on a Raspberry Pi thanks to James (pelrun). This allows anyone to easily start a print and control the printer from a web browser. It helps to have your .STL model oriented properly to begin with, but you can rotate/​scale it after you upload it to the printer. If you're designing your own parts, please read the design tips below. Please read these steps carefully and follow them //**every time**// you want to use a printer: Currently all of HSBNE'​s 3D printers have Octoprint set up on a Raspberry Pi thanks to James (pelrun).

-1) Make sure the bench and "clean area" surrounding the printers is free from rubbish, plastic scraps and any non 3D printer related tools. ​Do not start printing until this area is **spotless**. If the area is not cleaned and a printer gets caught/​jammed etc, you may be held responsible for any damage. Click the photo below for a "​clean"​ reference picture. Also make sure the print bed is completely clear of any scraps or old print jobs. Check that there is nothing in the way of any of the movement areas of the printer. (cables, tools etc)+1) Cleaning - both the room and the area. Due to dust messing up prints, this room needs to be cleaned regularly. Check the whiteboard - if it's been more than 2 weeks since the room was cleaned, you need to clean it before using the FDM 3D printers. This means vacuuming the floor & wiping down most of the horizontal surfaces. Don't forget to write the date & your name on the whiteboard so others won't have to clean it again too! Once the room's clean, make sure the bench and "clean area" surrounding the printers is free from rubbish, plastic scraps and any non 3D printer related tools. ​Don'​t ​start printing until this area is **spotless**.
