DESIGN LAB

Our Design Lab offers 6 computer workstations with all the software you need to turn your thoughts into things.

If you are comfortable with programs like Mastercam, Solidworks, or Rhino you’ll feel right at home. If you are just getting into CAD/CAM we have Fusion 360 set up on these workstations and encourage you to start there. You can set up a free account and dive into CAD with extensive online tutorials.

We are working on Intro to Digital Design classes that will get you up to speed in Fusion 360 for 2D and 3D projects.

Stay tuned.

Please use all software as-is. We understand that those of you who are power users have probably customized your workspaces and made other adjustments to your personal setup. However, this is a shared space and we all rely on a consistent user interface to get our work done. If you must alter the interface, please return it to original conditions for the next user.

Use of the Design Lab is complementary for Members as well as any guests with a hourly Cover Charge. If you have an upcoming Tool Reservation please feel free to use the Design Lab to prepare your work.
