The door to room 213 may be closed by default due to low traffic during the summer semester. If the door is closed, to submit or pick up laser/3Dprint projects, go to the fabrication shop at Room #011 during the following hours.

Hours are subject to change. Please refer to updates emailed to SSA students, posted on the door (most immediate), this webpage and our Instagram page. Make sure to always check the hours before planning for your project.

New submissions may not be accepted 30 minutes before closing time as the staff finalize the 3Dprints.

The fabrication facilities are closed during holidays, lecture evenings, and the time periods between the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Hours may differ during midterm breaks. Please refer to CCNY/CUNY academic calendar.

The website will include the normal hours throughout semesters but for the most up to date schedule, particularly for last minute and unforeseen changes, always refer to the schedules and notices printed and posted at the doors of Fabrication shop and laser/3D Lab. Our Instagram Page can also be a resource for your reference.
