The Laser Cutting Lab consists of multiple laser cutters that can be used to cut and engrave a variety of materials. Students and faculty are required to complete an orientation before using the lab. Working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator or AutoCAD. Open hours are:

MONDAY – FRIDAY : 10am – 8pm

SATURDAY – SUNDAY : 11am-7pm

MANDATORY ORIENTATION SCHEDULE:

After completing an orientation, to use our Laser Cutters, you must make a consultation through the WebCheckout Patron Portal. A consultation is a 30 minute meeting where we will review your file and materials, before scheduling your time to use the machines:

  • You cannot make a consultation without having taken an orientation first.
  • You must have a finished file as well as all materials you plan to cut when attending a consultation.
  • Consultations do not guarantee immediate use of the laser cutters. You will either have to wait until a machine is free or until your scheduled use time.
  • There are no walk-in spots. You must be on the schedule.

The Laser Lab cannot facilitate class orientations.

Always read the Laser Lab approved materials list before using the Laser Lab or laser cutters.

IMPORTANT: WE ARE NO LONGER CUTTING THROUGH 1/4 PLYWOOD. ENGRAVING IS OK.
