White Stag Innovation Lab
The White Stag Innovation Lab is a sports product design space for teaching, prototyping, and materials research. The lab includes specialty sports product production equipment, including single stitch, cover stitch, active seam flat stitch, post stitch, and serger sewing machines, a strobel, a 3-D printer and a heat press.
Located in Portland at the White Stag Block, the Fab Lab is a resource for students enrolled in A&AA courses. The lab provides a safe and supervised space in which students can create high-quality projects.
In the Fab Lab and woodshop, shop personnel guide students in woodworking, model-building, and safety procedures. Students can create experimental prototypes and combine high-tech digital modeling with traditional craft processes. Work produced with laser cutters, a 3-D printer, and a computer numeric controlled (CNC) mill and router can be finished with a variety of hand and power woodworking tools.
