The Rapid Prototyping Laboratory (Towne 167) contains four Universal Laser PLS 4.75 flatbed laser cutters and a fleet of 3D printers for hands-on exploration. Four designated PC workstations that are networked to the laser systems are available to provide support for part design and fabrication. The lasers provide students the ability to cut various nonmetallic materials, while the printers offer the ability to 3D print prototypes out of PLA plastic.
