ACCESS
The direct use of equipment within the FABLab is limited to architecture students who have undergone a period of training for the equipment which they wish to use. Some equipment within the LAB requires a technician to operate it, though files can be setup by individual students given adequate knowledge of file preparation. Below is a list of the equipment which individuals are able to be trained on and those which must be operated by a technician.

Technician

  • Beam Large Laser cutter 4’x4’ (150Watts)
  • AXYZ CNC ROUTER 5’x8’ (Router & Tangent Knife)

Trained Students

  • Universal Small Laser cutters 32”x18”(60Watts)
  • Projet 360  (powder-binder 3D printer)
  • Go! Scan 3D (3D scanner)

Training

There will be periodic training sessions available for those individuals that wish to operate specific equipment on their own time, during Lab Hours. If Architecture students are interested in being trained on specific equipment please contact the FABlab with a formal request. (groups of individuals are encouraged).There are also many on-line links to software tutorials which may help individuals navigate and resolve digital modelling trouble they encounter when drawing in 2D or 3D space. Links are made available under the RESOURCES tab.


*IT IS NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE TECH TO PREPARE AN INDIVIDUALS FILE. A FILE PREPARATION FEE WILL BE CHARGED ACCORDINGLY IF THIS SITUATION PRESENTS ITSELF.
