The Digital Fabrication Laboratory (FabLab) is a facility for inventors, entrepreneurs, tinkerers and anyone looking to turn ideas into reality. Here, you’ll enjoy you access to a variety of technologies that enable you to produce a prototype through the use of computer-aided design and desktop manufacturing technologies.
The lab also features a polycom videoconferencing bridge, allowing for consultation with FabLabs worldwide — such as those located at MIT in Cambridge, University of Nairobi in Kenya, Universidad de Sevilla in Spain and more. The collaborative nature of this network integrates users around the world with common tools and platforms to facilitate the exchange of ideas and designs.
The FabLab also offers classes in Corel Draw, 3D printing, laser engraving, vinyl cutting and casting and molding.
Open To All
FabLab serves students, business and the community — the first higher education institution lab in the state to do so — and is located in the Health and Environmental Sciences building.
Memberships are offered to the community at a rate of $150 for adults, $120 for seniors and $50 for current Rose State students, valid until May 30. A 10-visit punch card is also available for $100.
