3D Printing Process

1. Fill out the 3D printing form and attach your .stl or .obj file(s)

2. We will email you to let you know your item was received, a price and time estimate, and if there are problems with the file. If there are problems, you can resubmit the file after repairs are made, or come to Media Services and have our staff help you make the changes.

3. Respond that you agree to the price quoted and that you want the item printed.

4. We will contact you when your project is completed.

5. Pick up your 3D print in Media Services.  We can arrange for an after 6:00 pm pickup time at the Main Circulation Desk.
