  • To receive full consideration, print job requests should be submitted at least 3 business days in advance of when they are needed.
  • Prints are $4.00 base per print plus $0.10 per gram. For example, a 63g print job would be $10.30.
  • Files must be submitted in the .stl format.
  • Staff will contact you with the estimated cost, print settings, and completion time before starting a print.
  • Files will be printed by library staff during normal business hours.
  • Once completed, you will be able to pick up your finished prints at the IDEA Lab Help Desk during normal business hours.
