Staff will assist patrons in starting their print jobs on a PRUSA i3 MK3 or Ender 3 printer. We will need a functional, printable 3D file (.stl, .3mf or .obj) on a flash drive. Staff cannot assist with 3D modeling, altering or editing 3D files, or creating 3D prints from scratch. If you are looking to create a 3D file, we recommend using a company in the community, like Xtrued or Imagine That 3D.
Before 3D printing, patrons must read through the full guideline of 3D printing procedures. After agreeing to the 3D Printing Guidelines, you can make an appointment to start your 3D prints using the calendar below.
Material Fee – $0.10/gram of filament -or- $0.50/hr of print time if providing your own filament.
