About this event

"Learning the Tools" - Whether it is turning a digital design into a 2D, 2.5D or a 3D model, or building a physical model from scratch, this in-person session will focus on four common fabrication technologies (laser cutting, additive manufacturing-3D printing, CNC routing, & plastic thermoforming) that can be used to bring your idea into physical space. This session focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of each of these different processes and how they can be used in rapid prototyping. Participants will be able to see equipment demonstrations of how each process works. This session will help prepare participants for competing in the 2022 Spring Design Challenge (more info below). In-person at the NOVA Fab Lab (Manassas campus). This same session is also offered on Dec 16th from 6-8pm. No cost to attend thanks to our industry sponsor, BAE Systems. Open to college students, high school, and middle school students ONLY. In-person at the NOVA Fab Lab (Manassas campus). Students from all academic disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to enter the Fab Lab Design Challenge that will be released in February 2022. Although the challenge’s mission is to inspire innovation in fabrication, we want those with great ideas to participate, regardless if they have little to no experience on these topics. To accommodate this, we are framing the challenge around Design Thinking and problem solving with solutions being permitted from a wide range of mediums.
