The Architecture Department hosts a very capable set of production facilities hosing both traditional analogue fabrication equipment and new CNC (Computer Numerical Control) fabrication and output tools. We continue to add new CNC and fabrication capabilities to meet the demands of an educational and research community focused on the future of the discipline. Below you will find photos and descriptions of the Laser Room, the Rapid Prototyping (or 3-D Printing) Room, the Wood Shop, and the Metal Shop. Students and faculty can also download tutorials, drivers, access policies, and how-to information for each of the facilities from the downloads menu below.
