1. Only trained volunteers or staff may login to the 3D printer computer on behalf of a maker. Supervision is required by trained volunteers or staff for printing on the Prusa i3 MK2 and PrintrBot Simple. Only makers with a completed “3D Printing” card may set up prints independently on the Flashforge Finders.

2. Makers must fill out the 3D Printer Usage Log once their print begins, including the name of the supervising volunteer or staff.

3. Makers must be present when their print begins. Printing is first come, first served.

4. No print is guaranteed. Hatch volunteers and staff may not allow a print at their discretion. Hatch reserves the right to stop a print if it fails.

5. You may not save files on the 3D printer computer, please use a flash drive or email/dropbox/etc.
