Snow Day March 14th-Open Lab Cancelled

Hi Everyone!

Because of the snow day, Tuesday Open Lab is cancelled.  Stay safe in the storm!

MRR Part 2 is Now Available

Hello All,

If you are doing MRR as your SLDP, please note that Part 2 is now available and is required for commissioning.  For those of you who have already commissioned, you still need to complete Part 2 in order to submit.  Remember, you only do the tests corresponding to the sample types you travel to.

Important 3D Printing Submission Updates

Hello Everyone!

We have extened the submission deadline for 3D Printed Logos and Course Modifications to Friday, March 24th.  If you have any questions or concerns, please go down to the Prototyping Lab (RH 223) and talk to the TA working there.

For those of you who plan on printing your logo and course modification by yourselves, please be advised that you still need to submit online via the 3D Printing Submission tab and get approved.  Additionally, you MUST send an email addressed to both AND informing the Prototyping committee that your plan is to print independently.  If you fail to do so, you will not be allowed to use your course modification or receive extra credit for anything 3D printed.

Lastly, it is now required that if you submit a logo/course modification to be 3D printed (regardless of whether you are printing independently or choosing to have the Prototyping committee print your part), it is no longer enough to wait to see if you have been approved or denied via the website.  We are now requiring that you go to the Prototyping Lab after submitting and get feedback in person from a Prototyping Lab TA.  This way, you will know sooner that your print has been approved, and if it has not been, this will expedite the correction process.

The Prototyping Lab is open from 12PM-6PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  On Wednesday, it is open from 2PM-6PM.

If you have any questions about any of these updates, feel free to email and  Enjoy your Spring Break!
