3D Printing Request Process
- Submit your request; submit your request via the 3D Printing Submission Form as an STL or OBJ file.
- Approve of the estimate; a member of The CrAFTy Crew will contact you within one (1) business day with confirmation that your file is able to be printed and with an estimated price. If there are issues with your file, those will be addressed during this process. You must approve of the estimate before the charge is applied to your library account.
- Pay for the request; if you selected Credit Card as your payment method, you will receive a follow-up e-mail from one of the CrAFTy Crew with a price and notification that the charge is applied to your library account. You can pay for your submissions at the Circulation Desk on the main level of the library. If you selected Departmental Invoice, a valid departmental fund number must be provided before request can be processed. Requests must be paid for, either by credit card or by providing a valid departmental fund number, before they are processed, and requests not paid for within seven (7) days from the submission date will be deleted.
- The Crew creates your items; our CrAFTy Crew gets to work fulfilling your request! After it is completed, each item is wiped down with an isopropyl alcohol solution and set aside to quarantine for an appropriate period of time (usually one business day). Please note; specialty filaments or the SLA Form 2 printer takes an additional day for processing and finishing.
- Pick up your completed items; you will receive an email when your items are successfully created and ready to go with a link to the contactless pick up and drop off calendar. You will select a 15 minute window to come pick up your completed and sanitized items!
