New laser cutters!
We are happy to announce we have two brand new laser cutters installed in the AOC. The new laser cutters feature a camera to help you view what is on the laser bed. This will help you reduce waste and position your design on various materials.

With very few stipulations, the AOC’s services and facilities are available to currently enrolled students, active faculty and staff at SAIC; some services are open to alumni as well. Please see the individual resource sections for details.
All users must attend an certification prior to using the laser cutters or 3D scanners. The devices are self-service and are available for use during regular operating hours. See the Laser Access Policy or 3D Scanner Access Policy page for details.
Certifications are available online and can take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Laser cutting certifications are good for four calendar years at both the Advanced Output Center and the 280 Digital Fabrication Studio. Certifications for 3D scanning and 3D printing do not expire.
