  • Courses and Registration | PennDesign
    InTouch Any problems or questions pertaining to the registration process can be directed to the PennDesign Registrar 110 Meyerson Hall Advance Registration is a two week period in which students enter requests for the courses you would like to enroll Students enter their course preferences in priority order anytime during the advanced registration period This is not a first come first served process so there is no advantage to registering early and no guarantee that students will be enrolled in all their requested courses At the end of advance registration period the system will then schedule all students requests based on availability Depending on course demand the system may not be able to enroll you in all the courses you requested Approximately two weeks after the advanced registration period closes schedules are posted in Penn InTouch If a student does not receive a full schedule or if they wish to change their course selections they may begin revising their schedule when the Registration Drop Request begins All continuing PennDesign students are required to request courses during the advance registration period Advance Registration Tips Since advance registration is a priority registration system not first come first served give courses that you know you are competing for a seat in i e elective courses your highest priority Multi Activity courses Make sure you submit registration requests for all co requisites of multi activity courses i e lecture LEC and recitation REC Give the credit bearing section a higher priority than the non credit bearing section Courses that require a permit give low priority if you have secured a permit If you get a permit you are guaranteed a seat There is no need to waste a higher priority spot for a class you are guaranteed to get into Remember You still need

remember DO NOT use your Pennkey password The login website is NOT secure Enter your name as it appears on your PennID Enter your PennDesign email address Click the Submit button Please note that Your request for EDIT permission was not automatically granted and that your request to use the calendar must be processed before you will be able to make laser appointments EMAIL REQUEST You must email a request for laser access to Laser Access laseracc design upenn edu You MUST send this request from your PennDesign email address Please include your full name and your PennKey name Do not include ANY passwords For example format the email as follows I am requesting access to the PennDesign Online Laser Schedule I have already completed the online registration My full name is Mary Smith and my PennKey is smithm This request MUST be sent from your PennDesign email address Requests sent from any other email address will not be considered Requests will be processed as quickly as possible Monday through Friday during normal business hours Please note that NO requests will be processed during the weekends or evenings AutoCAD Guidelines LASER TEMPLATE Please read the Working with the AutoCAD Laser Cutter File for complete information All parts to be cut in AutoCAD must be drawn in the Laser Cutting Template available on the JUNO server at JUNO Public LaserCutter LaserCutter File Please use the Laser Cutting Template to ensure your file is properly formatted If your file is not properly formatted the laser operator will not cut your file DRAWING Draw everything in AutoCAD Files drawn in other programs that are then imported or pasted into AutoCAD will cause problems Use only the six standard index colors red yellow green cyan blue and white No true color For smoother cuts all continuous line segments should be joined using the PEDIT JOIN command All line widths should remain at 0 00 thickness Line Thickness settings for all layers are accessible in the Layer Properties Manager window If you want scored lines to be thicker do multiple 004 offsets If this is unacceptable the laser system is capable of engraving virtually any thickness line However this involves raster engraving rather than vector scoring and requires considerably more time BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT Erase all stray lines Remove all overlapping and duplicate lines The laser will double cut overlapping lines with very negative results Use the OVERKILL command When importing files from RHINO please refer to the If you Must draw in Rhino sheet posted in the laser room In AutoCad it is possible to have multiple cut templates in a single file Please ensure that any file you bring strictly follows the Laser Cutting Template format is well organized and is ready to cut Delete all unnecessary information from your file ABOUT THE LASER The laser s kerf is approximately 008 centered on the drawn line This will cause the parts that are cut to be slightly smaller than what is drawn This fact is normally insignificant but if it is critical to your work please make a note of it The rule of thumb for spacing between discrete parts is to allow at least half of the thickness of the material between relatively parallel cuts particularly on acrylics For example if you are using ¼ acrylic allow 1 8 spacing between individual parts Working with the Laser Cutter Template DOWNLOAD Download the laser cutting file template from the Juno server Go to Juno Public DigitalFabrication LaserCutter Template Open or download the file named Laser Cutter File dwg DRAWING The 0 layer represents the laser s maximum bed size of 32 x 18 The laser operators use this for targeting alignment when plotting If you change this size your parts will not cut correctly You must either draw your parts to be cut in this drawing or cut and paste parts from another AutoCAD file into this file Parts pasted into the drawing will retain their original layer names You must place these parts onto their new appropriate layers and delete the old layers Delete all unnecessary information from your file All parts must be placed within the dotted lines of the Bleed Boundary layer The effective cutting area is 31 ½ x 17 ½ ALTERING THE TEMPLATE FILE You may not alter the size of the rectangle in the 0 layer You must use the layers provided i e all parts to be cut must be placed on the magenta cut layer all parts to be scored must be placed on the blue vector score layer You may make additional layers named innercut03 innercut04 etc as needed You may make copies of the 32 x 18 box in the 0 layer for larger files or for files with multiple materials THOU SHALL NOTS Thou shall not use this file for anything but laser cutting Plotting from this file will embed information that conflicts with the laser drivers Thou shall not scale the original page layout Thou shall not come to the laser cutter with any AutoCAD file formatted in any way other than described above You will be turned away Illustrator Guidelines BEFORE YOU DRAW In Document Setup set Artboard Width to 32 and Height to 18 All parts to be cut or scored must be ¼ inside this perimeter to avoid bleed problems Effectively this makes the cutting area 31 1 2 x 17 1 2 Do NOT set up multiple artboards Set up multiple files instead All drawings must be expressed in inches DRAWING Draw everything in Illustrator Files drawn in other programs that are then imported or pasted into Illustrator will cause problems All lines on all layers must be set to black for laser cutting Lines to be cut or scored rather than engraved must be expressed as vectors Select the lines and in the Window Stroke drop down menu assign these elements a stroke of 001 You must type this in it is not an option to be selected Elements to be engraved such as wider lines and filled artwork must be expressed in raster mode that is they have a stroke and fill Stroke weight should be set to 025 pt or higher Fill must be set to black Separate layers must be used for parts to be cut scored or engraved Name the layers cut score and engrave respectively If you must transfer from Rhino ensure that all line work is set to the solid black line setting Beware of gray ghost line color a gradient line color or question marks in the line color box If you are unable to set your vector line work to the proper solid color and weight of 001 after transferring from Rhino check your Rhino drawing and export it again BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT Erase all stray lines Remove all overlapping and duplicate lines The laser will double cut overlapping lines with very negative results Delete all unnecessary information from your file ABOUT THE LASER The laser s kerf is approximately 008 centered on the drawn line This will cause the parts that are cut to be slightly smaller than what is drawn This fact is normally insignificant but if it is critical to your work please make a note of it The rule of thumb for spacing between

Glass Stone Anodized Metals Corian Banned Materials Rubber All Forms Casting Resins Polypropylene Polycarbonate Any material in the chloride chlorine family e g PVC polyvinylchloride Felt FoamCore Polystyrene Using the CNC Router 1 General Guidelines The use of this CNC router is restricted to academic work only You may not use it for personal projects work for professional firms or for academic work outside of Penn Design Students may not operate the CNC router Only trained personnel may operate the CNC router Unauthorized use of the router will result in immediate suspension of routing privileges Students may not bring files to the CNC router until they have read and agreed to all notices and guidelines in this document Students are expected to maintain a high level of respect for the CNC router operator Disrespect to the operator will result in immediate suspension of routing privileges 2 File Creation Design Modeling Formats Students must prep their files correctly using the CNC Template prior to submitting their work to the operators juno Public DigitalFabrication CNC Template Files can be created in either Rhinoceros or Maya Rhinoceros is preferred Files size is limited to 64MB No files lager than 64MB will be accepted No extra layers Files with layers that do not pertain to the CNC routing process will not be accepted Please use NURBS modeling when possible as this format easily exports using the IGES format Mesh files are allowed with the following requirement mesh settings must be set no finer than 01 precision Exporting mesh files at a higher level makes them unworkable All files must be expressed in inches at a 1 1 scale Models must be limited to 2000 cubic inches e g 20 x 25 x 4 The 2000 cubic inches refers to the blank material prior to being machined not the finished model size Group or class projects must be sub divided into 2000 cubic inch modules and submitted by individuals Students must submit and review their file with the CNC operator in order to be placed into the router queue Students may be required to modify their models to accommodate the cutting limitations of the CNC router The limits of router cutters and model complexity affect the size and detail available to any model Delete all unnecessary information 3 Materials Choice Routing Finish Students must supply all materials to be routed Choices of materials are restricted to various types of foam HDPE and wood Metal and acrylic routing is unavailable Students must prepare their material prior to routing but after their file review with the CNC operator Students must supply the CNC operator with the appropriate size blank to mill their project Finish levels will be determined by the CNC operator based on queue size model complexity and CNC limitations 4 Scheduling your project The CNC scheduling queue is posted on the door in the Digital Fabrication area of the lab You may place your name contact info Phone email and class info in the queue on the next available slot only if your file is ready reviewed with an operator and you have supplied materials to be routed Due to the nature of the routing process once a project is begun it must be completed in its entirety Projects will be completed on a first come first served basis There will be no exceptions Please plan accordingly No design changes can be made once you have reviewed your file with the CNC operator and the file is being routed Additional files cannot be added to your routing time Students will be allowed to submit additional files for routing only after their name has been worked off the list The only exception to this rule is that if the routing queue is totally empty a student may sign up for one additional project Students will be notified by email when their project has been finished Students will then have 48 hrs to pick up their work Lab staff does not take any responsibility for projects not retrieved within the allotted time All scheduling conflicts will be resolved by Dennis Pierattini not the faculty member or the CNC operator Q A CNC Router Q What is the largest piece I can have milled out A The largest piece you can have milled is 2000 cubic inches Note that this is the size of the blank material before it is machined not the size of the finished model Measure the blank by multiplying the width x the breadth x the height Ex a 12 x 12 x 2 foam blank equals 288 cubic inches Q What is the longest and widest run I can make on the CNC table A The working area of the CNC table is 26 ½ x 24 Remember you cannot exceed the 2000 cubic inch limit Q What is the maximum depth I can have routed A Typical models have a maximum relief of 2 ½ Under special circumstances we can cut as much as 4 ½ with a loss of detail and resolution The operator will make the final determination of what can and cannot be machined Q Can I laminate material to increase the size of my blank A Yes however oversize the pieces being joined so the staff can square the material to the appropriate finish size Lamination for the CNC is limited to face joining No edge joining Also you must use a urethane glue to adhere the foam together Please ask the staff to aid you in laminating your material together Q Can we cut plywood on the CNC A Yes and you can also cut solid wood and HDPE NO MDF Q Can I cut 3 dimensional topos into the wood or HDPE A No we are only allowing edge cutting pocket passes contour passes and drilling Q What is edge cutting A Edge cutting is following the exterior contour of an object We can also rout out dados laps and rabbets into your material Q But what is the largest blank I can work with that will fit on the CNC table A The CNC working envelope is 26 ½ x 24 but you need a 2 border on all four sides for clamping purposes So the biggest cutting area would be 22 ½ x 20 Q How thick of a piece can I cut A The thickest dimension we will cut is ¾ and the thinnest is ½ Q Do I have to have a three dimensional drawing for this type of cutting A Yes and no please see the staff to aid you in setting up more complicated files Using the FDM 3D Printer 1 General Guidelines The use of this 3D Printer is restricted to academic work only You may not use it for personal projects work for professional firms or for academic work outside of Penn Design Students may not operate the 3D Printer Only trained personnel may
