The UC Davis Department of Design has launch a new Design Makerspace in fall 2021. Undergraduate and graduate students will enjoy state-of-the-art labs for both design studio courses as well as faculty and student research. The space hosts a Prototyping Lab with 3D printers and laser cutters, a Makerspace classroom with electronics workstations, prototyping equipment, clay 3D printing and biodesign research equipment. The Design Makerspace also has fully equipped wood and metal shops. The new space will help students to create everything from biomaterials to smart products, jewelry, furniture, and large-scale installations. The fabrication equipment is complemented by a large Open Lab - a multipurpose space for student coursework critiques, exhibitions, events, and a sustainable material library. The newly landscaped Cruess Hall courtyard has space for student projects, outdoor exhibitions, events, a solar charging station and video projections. This renovation is shared with the Department of Cinema and Digital Media who has additional multi-media labs and two Cinemas.
