The DFS houses machines that translate digital creations into physical objects. We have a laser cutter, FDM and SLA 3D printers, and a small CNC router, and we carry materials like cardboard, wood, acrylic, cloth, spools of PLA plastic, resins, that students can use to make (almost) any project into a reality.
