3D Printing

Print Requests

Unless otherwise requested, all objects are printed using default settings that include 0.1mm layer height and 20% infill. Special settings requests may be noted in the form below.

Please note: if submitting multiple requests, open a new form for each one (do not just refresh the form).

After submitting the request form, you will receive a response from a library staff member with an estimated print time, cost, and print date for your approval within 24 hours. (Please note this may vary during busier print times)

Guidelines

  1. Printing for academic projects takes priority. Example of academic purposes include prototyping objects, creating educational tools, or designing products for coursework. While prototypes will be printed, the Library cannot print multiple copies of objects that will be sold commercially. 
  2. Printer use is limited to current students, faculty, and staff associated with Durham College and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
  3. Print jobs will be completed on a first come, first serve basis.
  4. Objects will only be printed during designated hours. As a result, approximately ten hours is the maximum length for any print job. When demand is high, shorter limits will be placed on print times.
  5. The library reserves the right to refuse print jobs that are deemed dangerous or inappropriate. This includes (but is not limited to) items under copyright, any items intended to be sold, items to be used for food or drug-related purposes, and weapons.

New to 3D Printing?

The Durham College Library is happy to provide consultations to those who are new to 3D printing and would like additional assistance. The purpose of these consultations is to provide guidance about best practices, tips for making the most of your print, and to answer any design or technical questions. Note that the library staff will not assist you in the actual creation of your design, but instead will give you guidance.

To arrange for a consultation, please submit this request form.
