The School of Architecture's large format laser cutters are available to MakerSpace users.  Currently they charge $10/hour ($3 minimum) for machine time; payable with Splash card or check.  They have extended operating hours.  Go to http://architecture.tulane.edu/dol/reserve-laser  to schedule time on one of their three 32"x18" laser cutters.  File formats are PDF or Illustrator.  As with our Epilog laser cutters, use a line width of 0.001" to vector cut.  Be sure to set your document size to their bed size of 32"x18" which is different from the bed size of the Epilogs.  Bring your material and files (on a USB drive) to room 104 of Richardson Memorial Hall; student workers are there to help you get set up.

===New Tools===
 
We've upgraded our bending brake to a 48" model, replacing the old 24" Pexto. Over the Mardi Gras break, we installed a Tormach Slant-Pro CNC lathe to complement our Tormach CNC milling machine.  One of the Ultimaker 2 3D printers was upgraded to a 2+; the other two Ultimakers will get the upgrade as well. (NOTE: All Ultimakers have now been upgraded to 2+ models.)
 
 
 
Other recent additions include a Buehler 12" surface grinder, two Autodesk Ember SLA printers, a Jet horizontal band saw and a 36" Eastwood blast cabinet with glass bead media were installed.  The vertical mill was converted to a precision drill press.  In addition, we've added a Rockler horizontal clamping system to one of the benches near the CNC Mill.

MakerSpace pano.jpg.JPG

A MakerSpace has been described as new amalgam of art, craft, and technology. Our goal is to serve all makers, and potential makers, in the Tulane Community[1]. We do so by providing tools, assistance, and ideas. Commercial use of the MakerSpace is not allowed. We provide 3d printer filament and laser plywood for academic and personal use projects. If in doubt, questions about interpretation should be directed to the Maker-In-Chief or a Director before a project is started.
