FabLab: Faculty

SAFETY TRAINING SESSION
Faculty can schedule a group Safety Training Session for their class by sending an email to the Digital Fabrication Lab Manager, Jenna Richards at jenna.richards@unt.edu.

DEMO AREA
The demo area is available to any professors who wish to bring their classes in for a demonstration, by sending an email to the Digital Fabrication Lab Manager, Jenna Richards at jenna.richards@unt.edu.

Following this, we can also take class reservations on the larger equipment. However, if a professor signs up to bring their entire class to work on a CNC router, for example, that professor must be present to supervise their students and guide them through their assignments. The dFabLab staff cannot serve as TAs.

PERSONAL WORK
During Hours of Operation
CVAD Faculty and Staff can also use the lab for their personal work but on a more restricted basis. They will not be allowed to schedule time in the lab during the regular hours of operation but may use the equipment on a walk-in basis if the equipment is available. This follows regular university protocol. 

Outside of Hours of Operation
In order for CVAD Faculty and Staff to use the dFabLab outside the hours of operation they must:

  • attend a training session
  • have at least two people present when working in the lab
  • hire* one of our graduate students or hourly employees to work with them
  • Pay resin cost (if using 3D printers)

*The faculty member, or department, would be responsible for paying the student. Payment can be made through an IDO (see your Department Chair or Department Admin).
