Do you schedule and charge for machine time?
You need to book time on some of the machines for up to 2 hours slots. Some machines
such as the 3D printers charge by the weight (in grams). Other machines charge per
unit of material, such as the dye sublimation printer, which charges by the amount
of paper used (by sq ft.2)
