Posted in ATS, ATS Resources, iolab, News on Thursday, January 9th, 2014

The io Lab is a new ATS digital fabrication facility for students interested in 3D scanning/printing, and CNC technology. The lab is located in the Art and Technology Department, a department that encourages the DIY culture in art, engineering and code. The space is available to both ATS undergraduates students and graduate students, and supports all classes in the ATS department.

The lab consists of the following digital fabrication tools:

Afinia H-Series 3D
The Afinia H-Series is popular when it comes to quick 3D model  prototype, it uses the same ABS material that is used for the MakerBot, making its prints versatile, but doesn’t require as much time to heat-up to start printing.

The Next Engine 3D Scanner
The Next Engine 3D scanner allows students to capture any object and incorporate it into a screen-based project or replicate it using the 3D printers.

Shapeoko Desktop CNC Mill
The Shapeoko CNC mill is an Arduino based CNC  that allows cutting into a variety of woods and materials using the XYZ axis. It’s open-source hardware design also allows for experimental rigging making it more than just a tool. One of the lab’s Shapeokos will be dedicated those endeavors.

The Form-1
The Form-1 by Form labs is one of the most unique 3D printers in the lab. It 3d prints by the process of stereo-lithography, utilizing an UV optical laser to cure liquid resin. Students use this printer for finalization once they are confidant with the prototypes.
