Design Lab

What is Design Lab?

A Design Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop offering personal digital fabrication. A Design Lab is typically equipped with an array of flexible computer-controlled tools that cover several different length scales and various materials, with the aim to make “almost anything”. This includes technology-enabled products generally perceived as limited to mass production.

3D Printing Workshop

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing is a technology, design, and manufacturing process that creates three-dimensional (3D) solid objects from digital files. A 3D printed object is made from an additive process in the manufacturing setup in which a thin, small section of the object is created, layer by layer, until it’s complete. 3D printing uses a ‘build-up’ philosophy, which is more efficient and uses fewer materials than the traditional method of manufacturing, which starts with a large object and whittles it down to fit the design. Among the types of products made with 3D printing capabilities include industrial products (like manufacturing tools and machinery), consumer products (like furniture, footwear, and eyewear), dental products, movie props, and artificial prosthetics.

3D Printing Workshop

Why 3D Printing?

It’s valuable to learn 3D printing because 3D printing is an important emerging technology that will play a key role in the way manufacturers create products in the years ahead. Learning about 3D printing may help you become fluent with the programs, machines, and processes necessary to do 3D printing. Additionally, when you learn 3D printing, you’ll better understand the key aspects of the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) system of learning. This will help you think creatively or logically while learning how to solve problems and work in group environments.

Laser Cutting

What is laser cutting?

As the name suggests, laser cutters create patterns and designs by cutting into materials. A powerful laser beam is the source that melts, burns, or vaporizes the material. Essentially, laser cutting is a fabrication process that uses a thin, focused, laser beam to cut and etch materials into custom designs, patterns, and shapes as specified by a designer. This non-contact, thermal-based fabrication process is ideal for several materials, including wood, glass, paper, metal, plastic, and gemstone. It’s also capable of producing intricate parts without needing a custom-designed tool.

CNC Machine

What is a CNC Machine?

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and CNC routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts.

CNC Machine

Why CNC Machine?

Instead of manually setting up machines in your production facility (this requires many hours of labor which can be costly and hard to find in a labor-challenged market), CNC machines have automated these processes, meaning the machines do the work, not your labor force. Software can be set up to automatically transfer the machining data to the CNC machine, producing the windows and doors, quickly and precisely without being reliant on a skilled labor force.
