RailCore

Read the IG RailCore usage instructions here

While the RailCore can sort of be controlled from its touchscreen, it is best to interact with the Railcore from the duet web interface. You may attempt to connect to the printer using its mDNS name railcore.local or its locally assigned ip address.

Creality Ender 3 Fleet

Ithaca Generator has a fleet of three fairly modified Creality Ender 3 printers. These are easy to use and thoughtfully maintained machines used for teaching, training and can be rented out for extended use. Most of our Enders run the original Creality Marlin fork. Interact with these printers via a Micro SD card and the clicky button Marlin graphical display.
