Artisan and Fabrication Lab, Purdue University

Demonstration Studio

In this large, open space, teams of students can gather simultaneously to assemble and demonstrate their projects, using mobile data acquisition equipment and other tools. The glass wall along one side of the room showcases the achievements of Purdue Engineering students to parents, alumni, and visitors.

The Demonstration Studio also houses six CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) stations, where students can design parts to be built in the Fabrication and Artisan Laboratories and generate the programs that run the CNC machines in those labs. At the CAD/CAM stations, students also learn the CNC machine interface and can test their designs by generating simulations of the parts they’ll be creating in the CNC machine.
