I-Create Lab New Pricing Structure

Posted: September 20, 2019 9:00:00 AM CDT

This semester marks the first time since the opening of the I-Create Lab that we will begin charging to use the equipment in the makerspace. There are several materials that must be maintained in order to keep the equipment in running order, such as cleaning cartridges for the large format printer, filters for the laser cutter, painters’ tape for the 3D printers, router bits and screws for the CNC router. These are just a few items needed for maintenance, and this doesn’t even include consumables such as ink, paper and pla filament. In order to replenish materials and to provide maintenance of the equipment we must charge for use of the equipment.

Sales Tax 

Sales tax is added to all charges. However, if you can provide a tax-exempt form the sales tax can be waived. 

Forms of Payment

Currently we are only accepting credit or debit cards.

Using Departmental Funds

For departments that wish to have their students, faculty or staff utilize the I-Create Lab to produce an item and will reimburse the I-Create Lab through a departmental fund via an Interdepartmental Request, we have an online form that you can fill out and submit.

Please submit the request at least 2 weeks in advance. You will be contacted by a staff member of the I-Create lab to coordinate a date to begin sending your students, faculty or staff to the lab to begin their projects. The online form can be found at the bottom of the I-Create Lab Prices page.
