Curriculum Materials/Media Center 3D Printing Policy

The Curriculum Materials/Media Center’s 3D printer is available to Campbell University students, faculty and staff to make three-dimensional objects in plastic using a design that is uploaded from a digital computer file.

  1. The Curriculum Materials/Media Center’s 3D printer may be used only for lawful purposes. No one will be permitted to use the library’s 3D printer to create material that is:
    1. Prohibited by local, state or federal law.
    2. Unsafe, harmful, dangerous or poses an immediate threat to the well-being of others. (Such use may violate the terms of use of the manufacturer.)
    3. Obscene or otherwise inappropriate for the Library environment.
    4. In violation of another’s intellectual property rights. For example, the printer will not be used to reproduce material subject to copyright, patent or trademark protection.
  2. The library reserves the right to refuse any 3D print request.
  3. Cost: 3D printing is free for all prints that are less than 100g. For prints that are 100g or more the fee will be $0.05 per gram.
  4. Items printed from the 3D printer not picked up within 7 days after being printed become the property of the Library. Items must be picked up by the individual who submitted the print request.
  5. Only designated library staff will have hands-on access to the 3D printer.
