Plastics Lab

Shape, form, bend, and inject plastic materials to bring new product concepts to life.

Plastics Lab Overview

Having access to an extensive range of materials makes iterative prototyping possible. Using injection molders, line-bending machinery, and other fabrication equipment, members can create just about anything they can imagine. A member favorite is the UV Ink printer, which can print customized color and designs on just about any surface.
