Digital Media Labs and Printing

The school’s digital media resources are many and varied. Based primarily on ‘win-tel’ technology, two labs, open extended hours, are equipped with advanced workstations, large format plotters and scanners, a variety of printers and other equipment for open student and faculty use. One lab and another dedicated instructional space are also available for teaching each with eighteen advanced work stations, digital projection, audio capability and other a/v equipment.

Available software includes AutoCAD, Revit, 3DS Max, Rhino, all Adobe products, Microsoft Office, and a variety of other applications. Plotters and public-access workstations are available in many studios along with building-wide wireless access and other facilities for portable (laptop) computing in all spaces. Four digital laser cutters and two large cnc machines are available in the model shop along with 3D printers and other digital fabrication equipment. Supporting these resources are a group of servers with extensive storage capacity, along with other capabilities including advanced print serving, applications distribution, and license management.

In addition to the labs and model shop facilities, many studios are equipped with plotters, workstations and printers.

Wireless access is available throughout the entire SSA building along with wired access in numerous locations including studios, classrooms and offices.

Hours:

Fall 2021

CADLab B is currently closed until there is enough staffing to operate the lab.

Studio CADLabs:

Studio Labs 219 and 319 are now open on the second and third floors, respectively. They are centrally managed by ArchIT and available only for all currently enrolled SSA students. These studio labs match the capabilities of the CADLabs, including licensed software and printing. Your cooperation is essential to ensure the proper function and success of these labs. CADLab rules and guidelines apply to both studio labs. Unlike previous semesters, ArchIT no longer distributes stand-alone plotters to studios. The studio labs hours of operation follow the opening and closing times of the Spitzer building. For any technical issues in the computer labs, please contact ArchIT for assistance. Improvements will be made overtime.

There are 3 mobile displays in the building that currently operate as a shared “honor system” resource. At the moment they are on a first come, first served basis. Please return the mobile displays to the first floor, when you are done using them. There are more mobile displays on the way.
