The mission of AR Lab
The AR Lab focuses on the exploration of new ways of fabrication and material distribution through robots, and improves the teaching and research of digital fabrication in DAAP. First, ARL supports faculty and student to test various materials including clay, cement, silicon, and composite material, which are difficult to handle by the typical 3D printers. Second, the robotic fabrication will allow DAAP faculty to teach computer programming and use scripts to interact with the robot.
Location of AR Lab
AR Lab serves the entire College of DAAP and is operated by a team of full-time staff. The robot is housed at the DAAP Ceramic lab.
