Access and Use of 3D Printers

Required 3D Printer Training

Students, faculty, and staff must attend a 3D Design and Printing training session to use the 3D printers. After successful completion of the session, users are able to independently operate the 3D printers. Reservations are required for these training sessions and may be made online through the calendar icon on the Science Library Makerspace web page

Participants must complete the online learning modules before attending the hands-on training session. Click the button below to view the modules.

             

3D Printing Policies

Makerspace 3D printers are used for research and academic, non-commercial purposes only. 3D Printers are available for prototyping, not for mass production of items. Makerspace employees do not edit files, create, or print items for users. 3D Print jobs must be completed while the Makerspace is open. Users may only use one 3D Printer at a time. Only library-purchased filament is allowed. 3D printer filament is not food safe.

All Makerspace users agree to respect the health and safety of the University community and abide by all applicable state and federal laws, University policies, UGA Library policies, and Student Code of Conduct. The University System of Georgia abides by the copyright laws of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code), which governs creating reproductions of copyrighted materials. All users of Makerspace equipment must abide by copyright and trademark laws. 

No weapons, parts for weapons, weapon accessories, or weapon replicas may be produced with any Makerspace equipment. Makerspace equipment may not be used to create or view obscene or inappropriate content including violent or gory content, sexually explicit content, content that promotes or condones intimidation or violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity. Makerspace employees reserve the right to deny or cancel any job that does not comply with policy and report the infraction to the proper authority.
