What happens next

Step 1- Submit your project to the IT Support Desk in Library 226 by brining your file(s) on a flash drive and speak with a Support Desk representative. Note: our 3D printer uses STL or OBJ files.

Step 2 - IT Support Desk staff will load your file, review settings with you and provide an estimate of material needed (grams), time and cost of the print.  We will need the following information submitted with your file:

  • file name
  • X-Y-Z dimensions (in mm)
  • output resolution (300, 200, or 100 microns with 300 or 200 being recommended)
  • object description
  • any special printing circumstances such as a date that the print job is needed.

Step 3 – If you are OK with the cost, then you take the form to Cashier Business Office, to pay for the print.

Step 4 - Bring receipt of payment back to ITSD, so we can verify and schedule for your print job to run.  ITSD will contact you when print is ready for pickup.
