Order Online

***We will NOT be accepting new orders past Monday, 17th.

Our online ordering interface has changed. We will make arrangements with you for pickup times, so go ahead and order below and we will be in touch. 

1.You must include your name, contact information, define the color, layer height, and size of the object when submitting your file (we only accept .stl or .obj files for 3D printing). You may also specify the nozzle size used (if applicable).

2.Please specify the timeline or urgency of your order (i.e. when you expect your object to be completed). We will try to accommodate all requests, however, if you require that your print be completed in less than 2 (two) business days, we suggest that you come in during our open lab hours to meet and discuss the feasibility of your print with a Guru.

3.All online orders will be charged a minimum of $5 regardless of size/weight to cover labor costs.

4.We are currently not offering delivery services. The Illinois MakerLab team is working on an online payment system, but for right now we can only accept pick-up orders.

5.Payment is required at pickup. If your print has failed or there is an error with your file, we will contact and work with you to fix it. We will also update you with your total estimated cost (see our pricing for more information) of the order. Any orders above $20 will require a $5 down-payment made in the lab. We currently only accept payments made with a credit/debit card.

6.Any orders made with a CFOPAL account are not affected by these changes, please contact us for more information about your order regarding payment. If you are a student paying with a CFOAPL account, you pay the Department rate.

7. Pricing is determined by the rate charged multiplied by the weight of the print. We use Cura Software to process and print STL files. You can download the free software and follow the instructions to get an estimate of the weight of the model. We print at a default of 20% infill , with a 0.6 or 0.8 nozzle filament.
