The Fabrication Research Lab, or Fablab, is a dedicated physical and digital fabrication resource specifically oriented to prototyping and process development and improvement research. The lab supports directly several fabrication-oriented faculty and their labs, as well as a myriad of partner and tangentially related labs. In doing so, the lab provides facilities for electronics prototyping, 2D and 3D additive and subtractive manufacturing, wood and light metal working, and digital knitting and sewing. The lab also offers assistance in machine usage and technique, computer aided design and manufacturing, and for the many programs from which our machines are controlled.
