New printer in the house: Prusa i3 Mk2.5S (no MMU2 anymore)
The Prusa was owned by BadPractice and now belongs to Metalab since the MMU2 was installed (see 2018-04-11_Jour_Fixe). It is available for everyone to use. The MMU was dismounted, because it had complications.
If you have no experience with 3D printing please ask for help and/or read instructions online.

Do I need to visit a workshop to use it
No, but you need to reduce the fan speed to 40% on this 3D printer. If you do not know how to change this, ask for help or use the Prusa_Mini which works with standard profile settings.
Printing at Metalab is free in general, however it would be appreciated to leave a donation if you print something that needs a lot of material.
|Layer height||0,05 - 0,3mm||-|
|Fan (speed)||-||We have updated our fan, therefore you should use 40% for your min and max fan speed settings|
|Print sheets||magnetic, smooth and textured||smooth for PLA, textured is required for materials like PET-G because it can destroy smooth sheets|
