As libraries, higher education, and hacker spaces begin to offer 3D printing services for students and community members, what policies do they have in place? While I’ve read lots of blog posts about costing out 3D printers, I haven’t come across any policies or guidelines for use. Before your institution purchases a Makerbot Replicator 2, help us put together some resources.
If you have a policy or know of one, please add the link below. If your institution does not have a policy in place, add some text below and together we may be able to create some boilerplate that other institutions can use. Finally, what copyright considerations are there for 3D printing?
