RUG/Pennsylvania/State College/Printers/PSU Blue and White
This is the page for the State College Rep Rap User Group's (SCRUG) Blue & White 3D printer. The printer was developed, assembled, and is currently operated by students in Penn State's Engineering Design 497J course and members of the 3D printing club. Our goal is to continuously tweak the printer until it is ready for distribution and sale to other departments in the University and local schools and businesses.
This printer is mainly comprised of blue and white frame pieces.

|4/29/2014||The blue and white printer is currently working but could be printing better. The y-axis is off and results in elongated prints. The printer in general requires more calibration. The extruder tip also leaks melted plastic near the top of it while printing. It is still currently unknown why the extruder is leaking and where exactly the fracture or gap in the extruder is located.|
