Working in the Lab

The Basics

  • Always work on the D: drive
  • Logout when you are finished
  • If you need to leave a workstation for less than 15 minutes, you can lock it
  • Do not leave a workstation logged in and unattended
  • Rendering 3D environments is not allowed in the computer labs. These are public machines, it's unfair to render on these PCs as renders can take lots of time.
