Design Station 1

A pair of Windows 10 PC's, loaded with the common tools and utilities that are used at rLab.

These are commonly used to prepare 3d print jobs and laser cutter jobs. Both PC's have SD card readers attached to directly write files for the Ultimaker 2+ 3d printers.

rLab members may keep files on these machines, but be aware that there is no guarantee they will survive - these are shared systems and other users may clean them out at any time.

The PC's are connected to the rLab Dropbox account and users are encouraged to use this method to transfer files and store work in progress.

These machines are not backed up.
