3D Printing Policy

The EDvolution Center offers 3D printing services to current Southeast Missouri State University students, faculty, and staff within the College of Education, Health, and Human Studies. Items to be printed for special needs students in local school systems will also be considered. Submitted 3D print requests are subject to approval based on scheduling, availability, volume, and appropriateness of submitted items*, determined on a case-by-case basis. Items are printed in the order deemed appropriate by The EDvolution Center, based on a variety of factors including feasibility, duration of prints, availability of materials and date(s) items are needed. Please allow three weeks from the time of request submission to receive your 3D printed item(s).

The EDvolution Center’s 3D printing service may only be used for lawful purposes. No one is permitted to create material that is:

  • Prohibited by local, state, or federal law.
  • Unsafe, harmful, dangerous, or poses an immediate threat to the well-being of others or the requestor. This includes firearms, rifles, shotguns, archery equipment, knives, and other weapons of any type. See the University policy about weapons on campus.
  • In violation of another's intellectual property rights; such as material subject to copyright, patent, or trademark.

The EDvolution Center reserves the right to refuse any request.

The EDvolution Center cannot guarantee printed items quality or stability. Finishing steps such as removing rafts, support material, sanding, and other activities are the responsibility of the requestor.

*Items must be educational in nature. Please see the EDvolution 3D printing guidelines for more information.
