ORIENTATIONS & CONSULTATIONS
Laser lab orientations are mandatory for everyone, including faculty, planning to use any the laser cutters. Students and faculty can sign up for laser lab orientations via the LibCal orientation page or clicking the “Mandatory Orientation” button on this webpage. Due to our new policy and orientation structure, we will no longer be holding class orientations.
Before you can use the laser cutters, you must make a 30 minute laser cutting consultation. This process can be done through the WebCheckout Patron Portal.
- You cannot make a consultation without having taken an orientation first.
- Please bring your Adobe Illustrator 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. Consultations are required before using the Laser Cutting Lab.
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 is strongly advised.
To use our Laser Cutters or the Epilog Large Format cutter, you must make a consultation through the WebCheckout Patron Portal. A consultation will review your file and materials, before scheduling your time to use the machines.
