The Fabrication Labs at Tulane School of Architecture provide students with opportunities to enrich their three-dimensional design explorations while developing their education in fabrication technologies.
The Fabrication Labs include the Print Lab, Millhaus, the Woodshop, the Laser Lab, and the Robot Lab. Please click the buttons below to submit a plot job, 3D print job, schedule laser cutting time, or schedule a consultation with our CNC Lab.
Before you submit a job to the Fabrication Labs see the submission guides below!
The Fabrication Labs are on call for the summer! Please email Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org &
Zaynab at email@example.com if you have any questions.
If you're paying with an IT form please bring a copy with you.
If you're paying with a check please make it out to Tulane School of Architecture.

The Print Lab, located in Newcomb Quad 1, is a student-run and managed digital fabrication and production center. Plotting resources include a PageWide 5000 XL printer and scanner and an HP DesignJet Z3200 fine art printer. Students have the opportunity to work with multiple types of 3D printing technology. The Lab is equipped with three Form 3 resin printers, ten Ultimaker 3, and two Ultimaker s5 printers.

Located in the McWilliams Scene Shop, the Architecture Shop enables students to work in wood, metal, concrete and various other materials. The Shop is open weekdays, from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm, and on Sundays from 9 am - 3 pm. Students are encouraged to use the Architecture Shop for academic assignments and other projects.
Millhaus, our CNC Lab, is located within the Science and Engineering Makerspace. Students have access to a 4'x8' Multicam CNC router.
Note: There is scaffolding along the walkway to Millhaus as the Engineering Complex is undergoing a renovation.
