3D Printing Guidelines:

Print Approval: The IPL staff reserves the right to deny any print job for any reason. (We will not print replica guns or weapons.)

Commercial Use: Prohibited.

Pricing: $2.00 set-up charge, PLUS $0.15 per gram of all material used (including support material).

Print Materials: PLA - a plant-based filament. (please Note that it is not considered completely food safe)

Colors: Each print/file can only be printed in one color. If your printing has separate components/files each part can be printed in a different color (set-up charges apply). Color selection is on out order form.

Maximum Print Size: 10" x 6" x 6.7" or 254mm x 154mm x 170mm (though we can scale you print to fit our Printer).

Length of Print Time: Varies be size of print, but can take anywhere from 15 minutes to over 24 hours. Print queuing will vary by demand. The prints will be processed in the order in which they are received. Staff will do their best to estimate a print date.

Modifications: Scale, orientation, and addition of support materials can be modified as requested, but staff cannot make other modifications. Files submitted for printing are deemed to be print ready unless otherwise noted on the 3D Print Order Form.

Support Cost: Material used to stabilize any object as necessary during printing will be charged in addition to the print. Supports are necessary for for print success.

Print Failure: Failure due to an issue with the file as it was submitted to the IPL will be charged. Failure due to the staff or equipment error will be reprinted.

Pick-Up: Prints must be picked up within 14 days of notification, or the print will become the property of the IPL (and future print may be denied).

Payment: Due upon completion. If you require a price estimate let us know in the Other Information of the 3D Printing Order Form, you will be contacted prior to printing to approve your order. Please note that these are only estimates and not the final price.

Payment Method: Cash or cheque only.
