Fab Lab Overview

The Fremont Lab is an off-campus facility with a variety of resources and uses. The lab includes a wood shop, machine shop, electronics lab, CAD workstations, flexible space, classroom space and office space.

The lab provides advanced computer aided design, manufacturing and prototyping machines as well as traditional power tools and hand tools. The flexible space, known as The Observatory, may be used for anything temporary. Students often use this space as a film set, a temporary installation site, or for large project assembly. Office space is limited and available on a quarter-by-quarter basis to graduate students. Usage must be project-based and applications must be submitted each quarter to be considered for space.

In the image above, you can see the white-walled Observatory space in the background. In the foreground, shared work tables provide workspace for fabrication, prototyping and electronics projects.

Fremont Lab Classroom

The image above is the lab's classroom space. This is where the Mechatronics sequence of classes (DXARTS 470, 471, 472, and 473) are taught. This portion of the lab is a shared workspace when classes are not being held. The classroom features 4 dual-boot 27" iMacs (not shown here), which run a variety of software for creative coding, CAD, CAM, electronics design, and productivity software.
