 WORKSHOPS (WKS)
 
   
WKS151: ShopBot Lab

Welcome to TechShop Labs! Labs are open forum environments, similar to an open studio. Each class is student-driven and entirely unique. Students are encouraged to bring project planning ideas, new techniques, and questions from every skill level.

So you have taken the ShopBot class and are interested in learning more? Here is your chance to ask more questions, see demonstrations of advanced techniques, and discuss your personal projects. Advanced modeling and project planning techniques will be demonstrated and discussed by our instructor. Bring in your project ideas and discuss design and manufacturing method options for your projects with our instructor and fellow lab participants.

Labs are similar to studio time. It is recommended participants bring any sketches or photos that will help the instructor better understand their projects and questions.

Due to the unique attention given to each topic in this class, Labs regularly vary in content. Students may take this lab as many times as they like.
