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.
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.
The lab is equipped with open source CAD/CAM software, allowing people to design and manufacture products.
Fab Lab equipment includes:
It is possible to “make almost anything” in our lab, ranging from small electronic circuits to full-sized boats, and even small modular cabins.
Step one (What you need to do before you arrive)
Step two (What we'll do here together)
Step three (What you'll do here)
Our Fab Lab is part of a global network of other labs that share ideas and resources. Named by MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld, Fab Labs are the leading edge of the personal manufacturing revolution.
