DunkWorks is a collaborative facility that integrates new technologies to support creation of prototype devices and testing of new designs prior to deployment in a marine environment. At DunkWorks, we support both conceptual development and physical construction by giving users of the facility an opportunity to engage in an iterative cycle of trying and failing-failing being a necessary component of risk-taking, innovation, and learning. In the process, users practice and acquire new, tangible skills to help advance their careers and the fields in which they work.
Includes resources for most mechanical needs, including measuring, tooling, and finishing.
Provides regulated power supply, soldering and de-soldering tools, EM discharging, and other equipment to complete electronics projects.
Two computer workstations equipped with the software to run all Dunkworks fabrication equipment as well as Autodesk Inventor and Solidworks CAD packages for modeling.
