280 Digital Fabrication Studio

The laser cutters at 280DFS are available to currently enrolled students and active faculty and staff at SAIC. All users must attend an authorization prior to using the laser cutter. The laser cutters are self-serve; users must run cutting jobs themselves, with the supervision of a lab monitor. See the Laser Access Policy page for details.

Authorizations are conducted on a regular basis, and are approximately 45 minutes in duration. Authorizations are good for one calendar year at both the Advanced Output Center and the 280 Digital Fabrication Studio. Signup in person at the 280 Digital Fabrications Studio - RM 126.
