What 3D printers do you use

We use JG Aurora Z603S printers for prototypes and test production. We also use JG Aurora A5 printers for testing and production for the oorail layout. We prototype and test smaller models on M3D Micro+ and Micro 3D printers.

What filament do you test with

We currently test with 1.75mm filament including Hatchbox PLA, Hatchbox ABS, M3D Opaque3DInk (PLA) and M3D ABS-R. We typically print in Cool Gray, Pearl White or Black.

Are all future updates free
