3D Digital Fabrication Lab

The 3D Digital Fabrication Lab operates at the juncture of Art, Science and Technology, developing practice-based research to experiment at the interface of physical making and computing relevant to contemporary arts and interdisciplinary practice. The 3D Fabrication Lab is designed to elevate and interface analogue and digital fabrication technologies, forming research alliances with other department labs through adaptable multi-media platforms. The new 3D lab, strategically situated in proximity to department wood and metal fabrication shops, the Mechanical Engineering Machine Shop and Art F | A.I.R. project lab (Faculty | Artists in Residence Lab).

 

   

 

All of these labs are designed to work together across proposed equipment inventory for the 3D Fabrication Lab to accommodate large-scale, digital, multi-material (wood, metal, ceramics, textiles, resins, plastics and new materials) with professional 3D equipment for milling, modeling, scanning, mold-making and fabrication, designed for professional exhibition and public art fabrication at all scales.

 

   


3DFab Lab is located in room 0250 in Building 534.
