Drop by the Eastfield College Learning Commons (Room L200) and talk to library staff about our 3D printing serivce.

What to expect:

  • Have your 3D object file (STL format) available on a USB drive.
  • If a qualified staff member is available, they will review the file and discuss cost and other factors before adding you to the print queue. If qualified staff is unavailable, you can provide information about your print job to the desk staff and someone will get back to you.
  • Cost of a print job is 10 cents per gram of material with a $1.00 minimum.
  • Once your print job is completed, staff will contact you and arrange for pick-up.
  • Print jobs will only be held for up to 2 weeks after completion.

If you have questions about 3D printing at EFC Library, please contact librarian & 3D printing coordinator, Jason Moore.
