RDC Fabrication Labs
Experience the RDC Fabrication Labs via a toolbox course – as part of a Design Thinking Certificate or Minor – or through a semester-long Lab Access Membership.
Have a project in mind or want to explore state-of-the-art fabrication technologies? You can learn techniques in wood or metal, prototyping in resin or laser cutting, or venture into the digital world of design, augmented reality, and virtual reality. Check out the Nancy Richardson Design Center’s evolving list of innovative toolbox courses and fabrication lab equipment trainings.
