A virtual tour with student employees (and Fabbers) Shannon and Olivia.
By Sarah Tuff Dunn Nearly as much as maple syrup and ski slopes, tractors are a motif of Vermont—but driving one safely is more complicated than some might think. So UVM had a unique opportunity lately when Liz Kenton at the Center for Sustainable Agriculture reached out to the school’s […]
By Jenn Karson We know that academic makerspaces create meaningful experiences for students, yet how do we measure this meaningful impact? Where do we start? Last fall on behalf of the UVM FabLab I attended the first International Symposium on Academic Makerspaces (ISAM) at MIT. Organizers for the symposium came from MIT, Yale, […]
The Spring 2017 issue of Summit magazine highlights prototyping and research in the UVM FabLab! FabLab project article
Bamboo is an appealing material for many purposes and worldwide because it is reliable, inexpensive and grows rapidly in varied conditions. As a 2015 Barrett Scholar undergraduate Civil Engineering major Sara Dorr created unique molds using the FabLab’s 3d printers that mimic the internal patterns bamboo fiber. These molds provided opportunities to […]
The Alternative Energy Racing Organization (AERO) uses the FabLab almost daily during the school year to prototype different parts on their alternative energy racing car, Greenspeed. The machine they use most is the laser cutter. The laser cutter allows them to create quick cardboard prototypes to ensure proper geometry and […]
A challenge in many parts of mathematics is that of visualizing structures that live in four dimensions and higher. Such visualizations are crucial for intuition as often important mathematical intricacies do not arise in lower dimensions. In this project, the CEMS UVM FabLab helped Professor Warrington make a 3D […]
