Printing a Part

From ProtoLab Wiki

Once a file has been processed and is ready to be printed, find a staff member to help add it to the queue. The staff member will then process the part in the printer software where they will estimate the total volume of the part. You will be asked to pay based on that estimate using your credit card. The length of the queue is highly variable, and the time it takes to print a model may range from a few days to being ready by the end of the day it is submitted. Keep in mind that the queue is very full during finals, midterms, and the time surrounding IPRO Day. An estimate of queue length and a time to come pick up the part will be communicated to you once your part is added to the queue.
