FAQ

Do I need to take another safety training for the Assembly Area for Spring 2021?

If you currently have a valid safety training for the Assembly Area you do not need to take the online safety training quizzes. However you must watch the new safety training video, as it contains new COVID-specific information.

What remote prototyping services are available from the Idea Shop?

Below are the currently available remote prototyping services being offered by the Idea Shop:

Can I submit personal projects for fabrication?

Users may submit personal project files, however based on our current workload these files will be accepted on a case by case basis and given the lowest priority for completion.

Why is the Idea Shop not allowing in person use?

Based on the current recommendations of public health organizations and Illinois Tech, it is not possible to safely allow the Idea Shop's large user base to access the Maker Space and keep a low probability of disease transmission. When making these decisions we have consulted the COVID-19 shop policies and experiences of shops in many other universities. Fundamental concerns include lack of staffing, the large collection of shared equipment, the inability to maintain adequate social distancing, and preventing large gatherings of individuals. We will re-evaluate our policy as more information / recommendations become available from the public health community and Illinois Tech administration.
