To use the online reservation system, students must create a username only once, after which they will be able to sign up for available time slots whenever necessary. Reservations are made in half hour time slots and students may not book more than two consecutive slots. Students may not sign-up for more than 3 hours of use per week.

The schedule is available for sign up twice a week. Every Monday the schedule will open at 9:30 am for sign up for Tuesday – Thursday. Every Thursday the schedule will open for Friday – Monday. This will continue every week throughout the semester.

To sign up for time to use the laser cutter, please visit the online schedule.

Students must bring their laser file on a jump drive/ thumb drive/ usb flash drive along with precut 17 3/4″ x 23 3/4″ boards. All files should be pre-formatted according to the Laser Cutter Guidelines

Use the AutoCAD Laser Cutter Template to format your files appropriately for the laser cutter. 

The Laser Cutter is only available during time when a monitor is on duty. Use of the laser cutter outside of these times is prohibited.
