Digital Fabrication Workshop
Digital Fabrication is the process of making objects through the aid of digital design tools. Most of our DigiFab equipment supports graphic design applications like Adobe illustrator, and can be used to make anything that can be designed digitally, including custom stickers, keychains or 3D models!
The Maker-space wood shop allows makers to access traditional carpentry power tools including various types of saws and sanding equipment, as well as hand tools and essential safety gear.
