Open Source Silicone 3D Printer
Documentation and custom firmware for the silicone printer created for mLab Check the wiki and the PDF Manual for a getting started guide. Created by Dylan Thrush and Steph Walker (Oregon State University). This GitHub includes the CAD files to make the 3D printer parts and also an operating manual.
