- If the printer is not connected, click the "Connect" button. Sometimes clicking the button doesn't work on the first try, so try clicking it a second time and it should connect.

- Return the filament to the front desk and pick up your part.
If you have 24/7 U Card access to the Student Design Lab, after-hours printing is on a first-come-first-served basis, and you must either use your own filament or check out filament from the lab during open hours.
