3D Printing Policy
The 3D printer is available to Eastfield College students, faculty and staff, as well as the general public, to make three-dimensional objects in PLA plastic using a design that is uploaded from a digital computer file.
What colors are available?
Color selection is subject to availability but typically we have the following colors:
How long will my print job take?
Typically, a print job will take between one and two weeks. When you turn in your 3D file for printing, staff will add your job to a queue and you will be contacted as soon as your print job is ready for pick-up.
How much plastic will my print job use?
The weight and amount of material for a print job will depend on how solid it is when designed and printed. You can consult with a staff member about optimizing your print job for the least amount of material, based on these factors.
Can I estimate the weight of my objects at home?
Yes, you can download Cura, the same free software we use in the library to configure print jobs.
Can my object be printed in multiple colors?
At this time, EFC Library can only print objects in a single color.
