Please plan ahead when using Discovery Learning Laboratory Shops. The shop accepts drawings and materials to be made into parts by our staff.

The CAD print may be e-mailed, attached
to the work order or printed. If printed, it shall be attached to the
CAD files should have all associated files included in a complete .zip
Solidworks – .sldprt and .slddrw (all files)
Inventor - .ipt .iam .idw (all files)

Each part is a separate
work order. This allows us to manage our time.
Work orders are prioritized as follows:
- Educational Support
- Funded Research
- Un-Funded Research
See also the Work Order Priority Policy. We aim to
complete most parts in one to three days within this priority framework. The
shop does its best but please give us time to succeed.
