The Hack Arts Lab (HAL) provides an open-access laboratory for creative digital fabrication and visualization. Thismakerspace-styled workshop is designed to support a breadth of activity ranging from undergraduate projects to faculty-led exploration.
HAL resources include 3D printers, laser cutter, advanced graphics, and microcontroller workbenches, all offered at minimal cost.
Our equipment and facilities are available to University of Chicago students, staff, and faculty for creative projects and teaching uses. We support the curricular needs of courses interested in digital fabrication and visualization, as well as self-directed projects.
Located in Searle Chemistry Laboratory (Rm 206), HAL is available for walk-ins and appointments during normal operating hours.
