Epsilon Laser Cutter | Laser Engraving and Cutting Workshop
A laser engraver/cutter is a machine that you can put certain thin sheets of plastic and wood into. It then uses a laser to etch patters, shapes, and letters into. One can also use the laser to cut completely through the material int any shape they wish. This is an easy and great way to make!

How 3D printing works in the Garage
Student employees work in the CECS Garage to 3D print objects students need. All one has to do is give them your file and pay. There are three ways to print depending on the need:
MakerBot/Taz: Regular print ( $5.00 and $0.05 per gram over 50 grams).
UPrint: For detailed or complex shapes with dissoluble support material ( $12.00 with $7.00 cost for each cubic over 2 cubic inches )
Eden: Highest detail and quality ( $30.00 Minimum to operate and $0.40 per gram of material used)
The best way to communicate with the students is to fill out the order form below or go see students in the Garage weekdays between 8am-5pm.
