    What is 3D Printing and what should you expect?

  • 3D printing is the process of creating physical objects from a digital model. The cost of printing is 20c/gram. We will be happy to work with you to set up a file of the object you wish to print. If the job does not work because of machine or file error on our part, we will be happy to reimburse you or print another model. We are not however responsible for errors caused by other instances, such as corrupted files or improper file formats, unusual objects and other unforeseen issues. For additional information on how 3D printing works, click here!
  • If you already have a file created, it must be in STL, or stereolithographic file format. Builds exceeding five hours duration will need to be assessed by TLC staff. You will be able to pick up your finished model at the desk the day after it is finished printing (varies depending on job length).
  • Printing jobs are currently on a first come, first serve basis. Please let the TLC desk staff know if your job is a rush and we may be able to expedite it.
  • Slight imperfections, such as the small indents and rough edges at the base of an object are to be expected.
