Remember, the purpose of the Fab Lab is to make prototypes or small individualized special projects. It is not a production facility. A prototype creates a working model of an idea so it can be tested and proven prior to being sent to a production shop. There are a variety of types of software in the lab to help users with the design portion of the prototype. The equipment can then be used to create the prototype out of various types of materials.
“3 D printing is the hottest topic in the business community. The strength of the CCBC Fab Lab is its educational platform.”
