History of the DFL

In 2014, CED opened its Digital Fabrication Lab (DFL) in part due to a bequest from Vernon DeMars (BA '31), celebrated architect and co-founder of the College of Environmental Design.  The DeMars gift, along with in-kind donations of design and construction expertise by alumni Mark Cavagnero (of Mark Cavagnero Associates Architects) and Tom Mead (formerly of WebCor Builders), allows CED to bring the best digital facilities to our students and faculty.  The 1,500-square-foot lab houses a variety of 2D and 3D digitally controlled equipment.
