3D Printers and prototyping and CAD fashion pattern-making services
The use of our 3D Printers, 3D prototyping and file creation, and CAD pattern-making design services and equipment may incur modest facility, material, and prototyping fees based on a cost-recovery schedule.
Specific information regarding 3D printing as associated costs and requirements is described under our “Prototyping” section.
Costs to be assessed for use of the equipment and any related design support services will be fully disclosed in advance.
Are there restrictions when Using T-SEC equipment at a partner site?
T-SEC works with manufacturing, academic, and Orange County Accelerator host partners.
Generally, visiting users are not permitted unsupervised access and use of host equipment or instruments.
Partner hosts benefit by using our equipment, and in exchange, they agree to maintain the equipment and to keep it calibrated to exacting standards. They also assume the responsibility and cost of training in-house operators of the equipment.
Therefore, with some exceptions, visitors will agree to use T-SEC funded and hosted equipment within the guidelines of the hosting partner and any NDAs or usage requirements imposed by our hosting partners.
Our advisors will work with you to determine hosting partner requirements, including any applicable costs.
