3D Printing

Want to make something with our 3D Printer?

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!         

1. Decide what you’d like to print. Check out thingiverse.com. Thingiverse gathers designs created by people all over the world and allows you to download them for free. (Tip: Look for objects that have a high number of “I Made Ones” (20 or more) or design your own file in tinkercad.com.

2. Fill out a 3D print request form. Choose from these colour names when filling out the form:

3. We will print your object and let you know when it’s ready.

We may contact you with questions about your 3D print submission and/or request that you make changes to it or find a new model if we believe that it won’t print as desired. Once your 3D print is ready for pickup we will email you and also let you know its total cost (based on a price of $0.10/gram).

3D printing is an evolving technology, and its use is primarily experimental. We cannot guarantee the quality or usability of the objects produced. 

Objects created by this service can be brittle and may have sharp edges. They are not food safe or suitable for small children. PLA filament is not suitable for load-bearing or industrial applications.

NOTE: We reserve the right to refuse print requests if: they are outside the capabilities of our printer (max = 11.6” x 7.6” x 6.3”); could be considered obscene or hateful; and/or resemble a firearm in any capacity. It is against the Canadian Criminal Code under the Firearm Act for any individual without a license to manufacture a firearm, including manufacturing with a 3D printer.
