General-Access Laser Cutter for Architecture Hall

College of Built Environments








As digital fabrication assumes a central role in the creation of models, prototypes, and finished products both here at the UW and in industry, students need access to such equipment to gain experience that will help them to be successful in their professions. The College of Built Environments has provided laser cutter access to the roughly 900 students in the College - as well as to appropriately-trained UW students generally - for over a decade, and currently operates four medium power units (two in CBE studios, two in Gould Hall that are generally available to any UW student who has been trained by fabrication lab staff) along with a high power unit (also available to trained UW students) in Gould Hall. We seek to add a medium power unit in Architecture Hall, to provide easy laser cutter access to trained students (both CBE and UW generally) working in that building and to address ongoing strong demand (our current generally-accessible laser cutters are sometimes scheduled 24/7 during busy periods).
