Service Limitations

To provide equitable access, users can submit two 3D prints/mo and print times are limited to 8 hrs for each print job.

When submitting 3D prints remotely:

  • If your job fails due to an issue with the file and how it is sliced, you will receive instructions from Tech Tutors for improving the file and/or slicing via the system
  • If it fails a second time, you will be asked to come into the Makerspace so the Tech Tutors can help you to improve your file and it's slicing so it will print properly. 

We are not able to 3D print using filament other than the what is provided by the makerspace. 

3D Printing Policy

MacEwan University Library reserves the right to refuse any print request.

We may not be able to print your submission due to the following reasons:

  • The file is not viable to print. It may contain elements or be designed in such a way that printing it could damage the 3D printer.
  • Prohibited by local, provincial, or federal law. No guns or functional weaponry. Props or costume items will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  • The file violates intellectual property or copyrights including objects or aspects of such that are registered trademarks or patents.
  • Commercial use, the service is not intended to provide objects for commercial purposes. However, prototyping is encouraged.
  • Multiples will have to be approved on a case-by-case basis, due to print time restrictions, only one object can be requested at a time. Class sets can be printed, other requests for limited amounts of multiple copies for non-commercial use will be considered and accommodated where possible.

Our printers are in an open and visible part of the library, please keep this in mind.

In summary, print jobs should not pose a risk to the printer, be prohibited by law, for commercial use, or violate intellectual property or copyright.
