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 and working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator or AutoCAD is strongly advised.

To use Laser Cutters #1-8, you must make a reservation through the WebCheckout Patron Portal. Individuals may only reserve one machine at a time, for a maximum of one hour per day. The Epilog Large Format Laser Cutter must be trained and accompanied by a Laser Cutting Lab staff member and cannot be reserved through the WebCheckout Patron Portal.

Please also consult the Laser Lab approved materials list and our laser cutting guidelines before using the Laser Cutters.




Faculty are able to reserve the Laser Cutting Lab for classes to do an orientation during your class time. Orientations must be made minimum 2 weeks in advance of your desired time slot. You can make a time slot for a class orientation here.
