Lab Pricing

Overview

You can use the I2P Lab in two ways, either do-it-yourself (DIY mode) with our help, or we can make something for you (service mode). We prefer the DIY approach where you learn to make things and use our equipment, and we help you. You pay more if we make things for you, as we have to pay lab staff for their expertise and time.

If you work in DIY mode, you take some free, introductory 3D printing training, pay one of the lab fees below and just come to the lab and ask for help to get started. Our staff is always there to help you – just ask them.

Lab Fees pay for

(1) Help and assistance from trained, experienced staff who are on-site during lab hours; (2) Maintenance of lots of equipment for you to choose from, so it’s ready to use when you want it; (3) Replace/new tools, including software, so you have some of the basic tools you need to complete your work; (4) Supplies and materials to keep the lab running (not user-specific), such as printer cleaning supplies, print beds, bearings and the like; (5) Samples printing materials so you can decide what would work best for your project before you purchase material of your own; and (6) Use of our large collection of Rep-rap printers (non-Rep-rap printers carry an extra cost due to higher material and maintenance fees); (7) Use of the lab after-hours and on weekends, subject to approval by lab staff.
