Professional Distinction: Instruction

Visit the first Fab Lab in Virginia to be part of the international Fab Lab Network! Learn to make just about anything using digital design software and fabrication equipment, including multiple 3D printers, a laser engraver, CNC mill, vinyl cutter, plasma cutter, injection molder, and more. Classes, demonstrations, and special events are held throughout the year. From unique trophies and intricate Christmas ornaments, to prototypes of machine parts used by real industries, the possibilities are endless. The IDEA Center will also feature an accelerator space for product developers. PLEASE NOTE: The facility is currently closed due to moving to a new location. The IDEA Center will go live again in early 2016.
