Week 2 Jan. 12 | Research how to do Project 1 in a timely manner
To me, writing down a timeline of when things are due and giving yourself daily goals helps with staying on track of deadlines. Just looking at our class website and the FABLAB website, I took notes of when certain things should be due/what was open or available at the FABLAB.
FABLAB hours (according to their website) :
M-F around 10:00 am-4:30pm
Who to contact if you have a question: FabLabHelp@arts.ufl.edu or Juan
You can reserve the machines online!
I think knowing this information is essential to new laser cut users who have questions about what material you want to cut etc. It's good to note that since we are members we have 24/7 access using our ID cards.
Presentations to class & powerpoint: 1/19/17
Project 1 due 2/2/17
It's also important to note which machine you plan on laser cutting and what dimensions your illustrator file should be. "2 of our laser cutters have 32” x 18” beds; the third one has a 24” x 48” bed. " Lastly, I know everyone's life schedules are different, so I think taking advantage of the times where the FABLAB is empty to do some work will help me get stuff done.
