Dremel 3D45 printer

3D Printing Policy

Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Lake County Public Library - 10/24/19

Purpose

A 3D printer is available to library patrons in order to further improve the educational and recreational needs of the community.

Eligibility

Library patrons (ages 14+) with a Full Access Library Card in good standing. Children under age 14 must be accompanied by an adult with a Full Access Library Card in good standing.

Fees

Patrons will be notified when their print job is due to be printed and given an estimated cost. The patron must approve the estimated cost before the job is printed. Payment for what is printed is required at time of pickup. Refunds will only be given for mechanical error. Print jobs not picked up within 30 days become the property of the library. Associated print job fees will be applied to the patron’s library account.

Guidelines/Responsibility of User

The Library does not and cannot guarantee the quality of any design or print job. 3D printing requests must be sent via email. Printing is scheduled based on the date the request was received and the estimated print time. To ensure projects are printed in a timely manner, requests will be limited to one print job per patron per week with a maximum 6 hour print time. The library supplies all 3D filaments. No patron supplied filament is allowed. Print jobs are scheduled by the piece, not by the project. If a project does not fit onto one build plate, or if different colors are required for different parts, then each piece will be considered a separate print job and will take multiple weeks to finish.

Physical Limitations

Physical limitations may include size, volume, resolution, material type, etc. For the full list of technical specifications, please refer to the 3D Printing FAQs.

Refusal of Print Files

Library staff reserves the right to refuse and decline print jobs which are deemed unsuitable for a library environment.

Library patrons will not be permitted to print objects that are:

  • Prohibited by local, state or federal law.

  • In violation of another’s intellectual property rights; such as subject to copyright, patent or trademark protection.

  • Unsafe, harmful, or dangerous, or that may pose an immediate threat to the well-being of others; for example, guns, knives or other lethal weapons.

  • Obscene or otherwise inappropriate for the library environment.

  • Larger than is deemed appropriate by staff.

Patrons are responsible for ensuring that their job requests are ready to be printed. Library staff will not edit print jobs. In the event a print job requires modifications, the patron will be emailed and asked to edit their file.

Confidentiality

The 3D printer is equipped with a camera for capturing remote video of prints in progress. The library may feature this footage on its website or on its social media pages. To protect patron privacy, no information about the patron will be disclosed in this video without prior permission from the patron.
