Our Programming

Become a member of the Studios @ Venture Labs to get access to our beautiful workspace, tools, lasercutting, and 3D printing services.

Guidance & Mentorship
The Studios are staffed at all times with highly trained Studio Technicians who are graduate Integrated Product Design Students. They can offer design and fabrication advice, guidance on preparing files for our services, as well as run our digital fabrication equipment.
Lasercutting is a fast and efficient way to create physical prototypes. We provide materials such as Acrylic, MDF, and Birch, for laser etching and cutting free of charge.
3D Printing
3D Printing provides infinite possibilities to create complex forms and functional parts. We utilize Fused Deposition Modeling printing technologies with soluble support material to create robust durable parts free of charge.

Penn IPD: Product Design Fair

The students in the Product Design class (MEAM 415 / OIDD 415 / OIDD 515 / IPD 515) hosted their Product Design Fair on December 9, 2021 in the Tangen Hall Colloquium.

Video Companion
The course centers around a sequence of three projects that each culminate in the design and fabrication of functional objects. A 2D Design, 3D Design, and final "Micro-Manufacturing" project will introduce students to a wide variety of design, engineering, and fabrication skills made possible by the new Studios @ Tangen Hall.

Fabrication Studios

The Studios consist of five unique spaces that provide various design and prototyping expertise to members of the Penn community.
