===Can I submit a design and have someone 3D print it for me?=== Nope! the Design and Build Lab is an educational space: it is our goal to teach you the skills necessary to design and build, as well as provide a helping hand, rather than build for you. === Can I run my business out of DaBL? === Yes and no. You are welcome to
Got a question? Hopefully it
will be answered here!
Becoming a member is easy. There are only two steps:
# Attend an in-person [[Welcome to the Lab]] session, where you will go over the [[Safety in DaBL]].# Complete and submit a '''Safety Waiver'''. Everyone (faculty, staff, and students alike) staying in DaBL for more than a tour ''must'' sign a Safety Waiver; you will be given one during the Welcome to the Lab session.
