Advanced Media Studio » Rapid Prototyping Service

While at ITP, Chris was the student manager of NYU’s Rapid Prototyping Service at the Advanced Media Studio. The Rapid Prototyping Service is a drop off service for design, print and art projects in the NYU Fine Arts community. The Service has an ULSX2-660 Laser Cutter as well as a ZCorp Spectrum Z510 3D Printing System.

In addition to developing the service for NYU, Chris also worked on several projects showcasing the capabilities of the studio. Here are some images of projects he designed and built.
