Fab Lab: Connecting physical and digital realms - University of Florida Design, Construction and Planning

With the Art and Architecture Fabrication Laboratory, or A² Fab Lab, students and faculty alike have more opportunities to explore new ways of creating. Located in the Architecture Building, the lab currently houses three primary technologies – laser cutters, 3D printing and 3D scanning, each of which provides different ways of bridging between physical and digital realm. “The students can push the boundaries in terms of visualizing their models,” said Lee-Su Huang, assistant professor of architecture. “One of the inherent difficulties you usually have with picturing your design is that sometimes what you create in the computer, you can’t build it with normal, flat materials. The Fab Lab currently has two laser cutting/engraving systems that can cut or engrave a number of materials, such as chipboard, museum board, medium-density fiberboard, plywood, basswood and other common modeling woods, acrylic and Plexiglas.

LCCC Fab Lab. Mcstemhs. Fab Lab : Century College. From idea to reality Our Digital Fabrication Laboratory (Fab Lab), located on Century College’s East campus, is a “hi-tech tinkers” workshop for inventors and people who have a need to design, prototype and build things.

Fab Lab : Century College

In our lab, individuals who can envision an idea, have access to a variety of technologies which allow them to produce an end product through the use of computer-aided design and desktop manufacturing technologies. The Fab Lab is available to Century students, faculty and staff. Lab equipment The lab is equipped with open source CAD/CAM software, allowing people to design and manufacture products. Fab Lab equipment includes: a laser engraver mini-mills - 2 Sherlines & 1 Modela vinyl sheet/sign cutter 3D powder-based rapid prototyping machine ShopBot (4’ X 8’ CNC Router) and a host of hand tools and bench top machines It is possible to “make almost anything” in our lab, ranging from small electronic circuits to full-sized boats, and even small modular cabins. Contact. Welcome to Mott Community College. Mtelliottmakerspace. Fab Lab. Created by a group of dedicated professionals at MIT, the Fab Lab is a place where ideas become reality.

Using a small configuration of machines, anyone with any level of experience can create anything. Through the online Fab Lab community, you can then share those ideas with people half the world away and collaborate on ways to tweak, improve, or polish your designs.
