Fabrication Laboratory


Experimentation with materials, prototyping and testing, physical mock-ups and the exploration of new fabrication processes is integral part of the design culture at the GSD. In support of these pursuits the fabrication lab features a wide range of equipment, ranging from cutting edge robotic workcells, rapid prototyping machines and several CNC milling machines to metal working machines and material testing machines. The shop is structured as an open environment for material-based learning and research, using a wide range of materials from foam and wood, metal and plastics to composites and smart materials. Scale models and full-size prototypes are produced by students and faculty of all departments and all study programs at the GSD.
