Envisioned as an incubator for ideas and a place to engage people’s imaginations, the Vermont FabLab at UVM will make rapid-prototyping tools available to Vermonters and provide the opportunity for interaction in developing and testing innovative products and ideas. Modeled on the successful FabLab Consortia out of MIT and 150 similar public-access rapid-prototyping facilities operating worldwide, the Vermont FabLab in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences will offer hands-on tools and capabilities including CAD/CAM software, 3D scanning, 3D printing, laser cutting and engraving, circuit board fabrication, electrical assembly and test tools.
Join this webinar and conference call and learn all about the FabLab and how you can make your ideas come alive in 3D with Dr. John Cohn.
