RDC Fabrication and Digital Labs
Experience our labs via a toolbox course – as part of a Design Thinking Certificate or Minor – or through our semester Access Membership. Whether you want to learn techniques in wood or metal, prototyping in resin or laser cutting, or get into the digital world of design, augmented reality, or virtual reality, the RDC has an evolving list of toolbox courses. Have a project in mind, or just want to explore fabrication technologies? Then an access pass may be right for you. Learn about the equipment available in each lab and associated training sessions via the links on our Training page.
Starting Fall 2021 all CSU students, faculty, and staff can purchase a semester all-access membership to the fabrication labs, equipment, trainings, technician assistance and select testing materials. More details of the RDC Lab Access Membership’s fee breakdown, including what the RDC provides, can be found here. To get started, buy your membership online at https://rdc-colostate.nbsstore.net/lab-memberships via credit card or in the Prototype Lab via RamCash anytime during the semester.
