Once you have completed group training, you still need at least one supervised session with studio staff before you can work independently. Use the staff calendars above to schedule a one-on-one appointment for this. Use the calendar below to reserve unsupervised time on the laser cutter.
INDIVIDUAL TIME WITH LASER CUTTER
In order to accommodate the high demand for the laser cutter and to ensure everyone has access to the tool, reservation times are capped as follows:
Mon-Fri 9am-4pm: reservations are limited to 2 hours per week per user.
Evenings and Weekends: In order to access the Prototyping Studio during evenings and weekends, you must have completed the online safety training module, which can be found by clicking here
If you can no longer make your reservation time, please cancel immediately so that others can use the laser cutter during that time.
Only pre-approved materials, like the paper, fabric, wood, and acrylic sheets found in the Prototyping Studio can be used in the laser cutter.
If you are new to 3D modeling and printing technologies, consider viewing/following along with this set of 3D printing tutorials. In it you will learn about how to successfully download 3D models to print, How to make your own 3D models from scratch using free and easy to use software, and learn about the fundamentals of 3D printing.
All 3D printing sessions are supervised by a Studio Staff member to ensure successful prints and to safeguard the printer from any damage.
