Advanced Fabrication Lab

The Advanced Fabrication Lab is comprised of 3 distinct spaces, each fulfilling a different purpose in our rapid prototyping workflow. The Design Studio (2123) supports scanning and CAD prototyping using high power workstations, the Mechanical Prototyping room (2130) supports advanced manufacturing technologies, and the Electrical Prototyping room (2231) supports custom PCB fabrication and other electronics work.

The Advanced Fabrication Lab is the flagship lab of Terrapin Works, and is key to supporting important research, student projects, and innovation. Comprised of over 2 million dollars worth of digital manufacturing equipment, the AFL was designed to foster the creative process from design ideation to fully functional end-use parts.
