Laser Cutters

The College of Design has three Universal Laser System laser cutters available in Leazar Hall 220A, next to the Materials Lab, and one laser cutter in Brooks 119. The laser cutters are available for College of Design students, faculty and staff only. Laser cutters provide precise cutting and engraving on a variety of materials.

Users must attend a Laser Cutter Certification Session before they are given access to use the laser cutters. Certification sessions will introduce users to the safe and efficient operation of the laser cutters. Certification sessions take place at different times throughout each semester in the laser cutter room, Leazar Hall 220A, next to the Materials Lab. Sign-up sheets with dates/times for certification are posted by Leazar 220A. Contact Jim Dean in the Materials Lab if no sign-up sheet is posted. 

Laser Cutter Reservations are created using the Laser Cutter Reservation system. Instructions for using the laser cutter reservation system are on that page.
