Lab Pricing

Overview

You can use the I2P Lab in two ways, either do-it-yourself (DIY mode) with our help, or we can act as a consulting service helping you with your 3D printing questions and issues (consulting mode).

If you work in DIY mode, you take a introductory 3D printing training, pay for a lab pass, and then 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.
