Take Note

The Fabrication Studio has moved to a much larger space with new 3D printing technologies for your projects. The new “Fabrication Studio Underground” is now in Room B430 in the DC’s Lower Level (map). Watch for a complete story on everything new in one of the DC’s most interesting resources.

The Groundworks Orientation is now on Canvas. This course introduces you to the resources of the Digital Media Commons. Upon completing the modules you will create an account, enabling you to reserve the Multimedia Rooms and the Recording Booth.

Building Construction Updates
During the past four months the Duderstadt Center Facilities Team has coordinated several major building renovation projects – and done an outstanding job! Just completed:

  • Completion of the all new Fabrication Underground space.
  • Replacement of a major portion of the DC’s heating and cooling system.
  • Conversion of existing interior lighting to energy efficient LED lamps (DC building CO2 reduction estimated at 190 metric tons per year).
  • Renovation of Suite 1315, the primary location of most Digital Media Commons staff. Better lighting, more efficient and pleasant space for all.

We will be featuring more stories about DC projects and improvements.
