3D Printing Rules

The library does not guarantee a successful print. Unless the print fails to finish, the cost of the completed print, regardless of quality, will still be charged.

Typically your model will be printed within 72 hours. However long print queues and breakdowns do happen and therefor we cannot guarantee completion times.

If a print fails, it may be attempted only two more times.

Items that are not picked up after one week (7 days) will become property of the Lied Public Library.

Items must be picked up by the individual who printed them.

A charge in the amount of the print’s cost will be added to the patron’s record for any unclaimed items.

Only designated library staff and trained patrons will have access to the 3-D printer.

The library is not responsible for the subsequent safety of any item made with the 3-D printer.
