E2 CNC Shop info

The CNC Shop located on the 2nd floor of 25 East 13th Street (see map) is open to all students. We have a large ShopBot CNC router with a vacuum bed that cuts full 4’x8′ sheets of material, as well as a ShopBot Buddy CNC router, and two Roland MDX540 4 axis CNC mills.

We have updated the process for submitting CNC jobs. Please read the File Submission Process document, linked on the right column of this page.


During our open hours, you can stop by to consult with a technician. We’ll help you decide if CNC machining is right for your project, and then we can help process files to be submitted.

Please keep in mind that once a job is submitted, it will take at least 3 to 5 business days to cut. During mid-terms and finals, the queue can be quite long.

The queue for the CNC Shop can be viewed here.

The CNC/Machine shop at 2 West 13th Street now has additional CNC capabilities. Please visit their resource page for information.

We run CNC Training sessions through the CNC shop in the 2 W 13th Street building.  You can sign up from that resource page, and then be sure to show up at that shop for the training session.
