Know Before You Submit

  • The cost is 10 cents per gram of filament used, which should be paid once the print is complete.
  • Files should be in STL or OBJ format.
  • Designs are printed using one selected PLA filament, which is a biodegradable plastic from plant-based sources. Choose from our list of available filament colors, or choose “Surprise Me” for a random color choice!
  • 3D print designs must be smaller than 250 × 250 × 250 millimeters (9.84 x 9.84 x 9.84 inches) and cannot take more than 10 hours to print.
  • All print requests must abide by the Acceptable Use of The Hub policy and the library reserves the right to disapprove 3D print requests due to violation of the policy or equipment limitations.
