Located at the Fort Omaha Campus' Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology in Building 24

The Prototype Design Lab is an open-access makerspace focused on developing prototypes from initial conceptualization to final fabrication; in other words, it's a place to just make cool stuff. 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, a plasma cutter and a vinyl cutter are among the many types of equipment available for use.

Whether you’re an artist, an engineer, an inventor, a business owner or just simply curious, the Prototype Design Lab can make your creative vision a reality. Technicians are available for assistance.

The Lab is open to the public by registering below, or by calling Central Registration at 531-MCC-2400
