Abstract

The use of desktop 3D printers has increased significantly in recent years as quality has improved and prices have dropped. Even as 3D printing has become more accessible, users are still bottlenecked by needing to be present to remove parts from the printer bed and manually start the next print. Our project has removed this limitation by designing and building an autonomous system to remove parts from a printer and manage an online queue of jobs. These components form a reliable, user-friendly system that increases the utility and efficiency of a 3D printer.
