Dremel 3D45 Idea Builder - "Janet" and "Dai"



Build Volume

The build volume for the Dremel 3D45 Idea Builder is 254 mm x 152 mm X 170 mm (10 in x 5.98 in x 9.69 in) We recommend avoiding prints that use the entire surface of the printer's build platform.


Slicer Software

The Dremel 3D45 3D printers are accessible in the  3DPrinterOS cloud-based 3D printer management software. All UAB students, faculty, and staff who complete required 3D printer training will have remote access to the printers managed in 3DPrinterOS.

Dremel-flavored Cura is available as slicing software for the Dremel 3D45 printers.  The software can be downloaded from the Dremel website.
