    Who Can Print 3D Objects

    Currently enrolled students and faculty/staff


    [top]

    Production Timeframe

    Patrons are strongly advised to submit their files at least 5 business days in advance of important deadlines.

    • Production timeframe may vary depending upon such factors as the object's printer file itself, staff and device availability, and/or unexpected device or material issues that may arise. Thus, the CDS does not guarantee specific completion times.

    • Generally, objects are printed on a first-come, first-served basis; however, priority will be given to students printing objects related to graded assignments for a course in which they are currently enrolled.
