The School of Art Advanced Concepts Lab (ACL) is to become a resource for all students seeking to expand their modeling and design investigations using computer numerically controlled processes, as well as various other scanning and forming technologies.
The Division of Design at the School of Art provides the access to 3D fabrication technology as it corresponds to studio classes where the students learn about 3D digital manufacturability. The shop hours will be dependent upon the availability of the Instructional Technician.
Because of maintenance and safety issues, this lab is only to be used for purposes related to the UW’s teaching mission. Instructional technicians will supervise all operations in the lab and provide machine specific training to students.
