Laser Cutters can make very accurate two dimensional cuts through a material. We see people making everything from custom lace to 3D topographical maps to shelving.

3D Printers can make small plastic parts with decent accuracy. They are relatively cheap to use, and are super easy to get started with! For examples of what you can print, check out Thingiverse.

The Othermill is a portable, precise milling machine that allows you to create 2D and 3D objects out of durable materials, such as wood, metal, and plastic, using digital designs.

Our electronics workstation includes everything from soldering irons and fume extractors, to a PCB mill and oscilloscopes.

We can assist you in fabricating everything from a simple arduino-based project to a space-ready cubesat.

Laser cutting allows making very accurate two-dimensional cuts and engravings on materials such as woods and plastics.

Please reference our list of approved and banned materials. If you would like to cut a material not on this list, please submit to staff an MSDS with an approval form for consideration.

We have two Universal Laser Systems (ULS) laser cutters. One is a 40W laser with a 18″ by 24″ bed, and the other is 150W dual laser with a 24″ by 48″ bed. Our larger laser cutter can accommodate a rotary fixture that allows engraving cylindrical objects such as pint glasses.

3D printers can make plastic parts with decent accuracy. Our printers print with PLA, a popular plastic that is also biodegradable. Printers are relatively cheap to use, and are super easy to get started with!

We have three models of printers. Our four Flashforge Finders are easy to use and have a build volume of 5.5″ by 5.5″ by 5.5″. Our eight Flashforge Creator Pros have a build volume of 8.9″ 5.8″ by 5.9″ and have a heated bed that helps larger prints adhere to the bed while printing. Our Flashforge printers print with 1.75 mm nominal filament, and prints can be prepared in Flashprint.

We have two Ultimaker 2+‘s, one regular and one Extended+. Ultimaker printers can print with finer resolution but this may take longer. Ultimaker printers print with 3 mm nominal filament, and prints can be prepared in Cura.

Don’t have enough time to model but want to print? Check out Thingiverse for a gallery of thousands of free files that you can download and print.

Vinyl cutting can be used for making custom decals or t-shirts.

Our TITAN 3 vinyl cutter can cut vinyl up to 28″ wide. We have both exhibition vinyl (ORACAL 631) in a variety of colors and white heat transfer vinyl for sale.
