Supplies Options and Pricing

Use of the Collaboratory is free. We do charge for supplies for the laser cutter, Carvey, 3D printer, laminator, and Silhouette machines. We do not have a set price for all other materials. Instead we request a monetary donation at your discretion to cover the cost of these supplies. We encourage you to consider “paying it forward” by adding a little extra to your donation in order to balance out those who are unable to give financially.

You also may bring your own supplies for most of our equipment. Please ask us about what materials are acceptable for each machine.
