Financing  Bought from official Vendor (€470)

In addition to the two Prusa Minis which are our main 3d Printers at the lab we now have a Sidewinder X2 for larger print jobs.

  • Please bring your own filament and only use plain PLA. Additives like wood or carbon wear out the nozzles extremely quickly.


  • Build volume 300 x 300 x 400 mm
  • Printable via USB Stick
  • Material: plain PLA


If you haven't used the printer, register for the monthly 3D printing intro course or ask in the 3d_printing channel on Slack beforehand.

  • Slice your .stl in PrusaSlicer
  • Use the official presets for the Artillery Sidewinder X2 (same as for the X1)
    • Add "Artillery" in the "Other Vendors" tab
    • Add the "Artillery Sidewinder X1" on the "Artillery FFF" tab that should have appeared
    • Select "Artillery Sidewinder X1 BL-TOUCH" as your printer
  • Get the USB stick that's in the printer, export to the USB via the button on the bottom right in PrusaSlicer, and put it back into the printer
  • Verify that you're about to start the right print via the filename
