Advanced Production Lab

The Advanced Production Lab is a meeting place for experimental fabrication techniques–from 3D-scanning for virtual reality to laser engraving on sandwiches, we’re always up to something special here.

The APL utilizes digital technologies to support students in their creative practices. Studio Managers and Monitors are available to assist students with a range of projects involving fine art digital printing, 3D scanning and printing, laser cutting and engraving, and vinyl cutting.
