FORMS / 3D PRINTING
The CEID has a variety of resources available to its members. For more information on the space and trainings, or on upcoming events, please go to our About, Space, and Calendar pages. Some of our resources require the completion of an online request form, including our 3D Print Request Form, Room Reservation Form, and Locker Request Form.
3D PRINT REQUEST
The CEID has five 3D printers: three Makerbot 5th Generation Replicators, a Dimension Elite and an Objet30 Pro. We offer Makerbot trainings on a weekly basis, which members can sign up for on Classes*V2. After certification, member have 24/7 access to these machines.
If the Makerbots don’t satisfy your printing requirements, you may request that CEID Staff print your job on one of our more sophisticated printers. To do so, please download the form below and follow the instructions on the form. Not following the instructions will cause delays. CEID Staff will review jobs on a case-by-case basis to assess whether or not we will be able to accommodate the request.
