Laser Cutter

The School has a Laser Cutter that is super-easy to use. 
It basically just works as a printer. Red lines cut. Blue lines score. It's (almost) that easy. 

Use Adobe Illustrator for to make your drawings. 
This can be found on most school computers. Alternatively you can buy a copy of the entire Adobe Suite under the School licence at a small cost.

Build your model in Google Sketchup.
This program is easy to use and can be found on most of the school computers or is available as a free download for your own laptop.

This can then be printed out in the IST Department. 
The print time is long so be organised and it can be setup to print over a evening/weekend.
