The Fabrication Lab (Fab Lab) enables students and faculty members to construct digital and physical three-dimensional scale models of urban sites, landscapes, buildings, and building components. The Fablab consists of two shop spaces: one space is principally devoted to fabrication of model components in a range of materials (woods, plastics, and composites like MDF) using both traditionally analog and digital CNC shop equipment; the second space utilizes rapid prototyping equipment including 3D printers and laser cutters to complement the full scope of industry standard fabrication capabilities.

Fabrication Lab Weekly Schedule
Laser Cutting and 3D Printing
Digital Fabrication Lab (FAB LAB)
Location: Architecture Building, Room 0107
Opens 24/7 hours (Card access ONLY)
- Two laser cutters - see the model shop for use
- Four Makerbot Replicator+
- One Makerbot Z18 large format 3D printer
The FabLab offers 1-hour training sessions on the Laser cutters and 3D Printers (30 minutes for each) throughout the semester.These training sessions are open to all students School-wide. Each training session provides an overview of the equipment resources and hands-on demonstration of how to print, and cut.
Training for laser cutters and 3D printing is mandatory in order to gain access to the Fabrication Lab.
