As students in the College of Design, you have access to the W.L. Hall Workshop in Rapson Hall, a fully-equiped woodshop that is home to the Universal Laser Systems X-660 laser cutter! This machine can cut, etch, or engrave a variety of substrates (excluding glass) from a simple vector image. Rasterized photographs can be etched at varying levels as well.
