3D Printing Costs

The following tables show a summary of 3D printing costs for all printers available in the Maker Lab.  The cost is a summation of print time and material used.  The Maker Lab operates on a break-even budget.  Print time covers costs related to that specific machine.  Material cost comes directly from it’s original purchase price.  Please email us for specialized material requests.
