Spaces opening up at Kingsland Design & Engineering Lab. Kingsland D&E is a shared design/build space catering to artist, designers and fabricators that need a space to develop and prototype their products. Our shop is split into a shared Design area and a Fabrication area. The Design area offers your own built-in desk, WiFi, access to office and large format printers, Dimension 1200sst FDM 3D printer and electronics equipment. The Fabrication section offers access to table saws, chop/pull saws, sand blasting, MIG/TIG/Oxy welding and welding tables, laser engraver/cutter (acrylics), 3 Vertical Milling Centers (Johnford 500VMC, Milltronics, and RoboDrill), Manual/CNC Bridgeport Hybrid and Manual Lathe. Holy Shit, right? Build whatever the hell you want, but we're mostly tailored towards metals and plastics rather than wood to keep dust down. Also, we stress "prototyping". We have not the room for production-level fabrication of large items. But, you can sure get to that point here. This is a great spot for those that divide time between computer-based design and physical prototyping or want to get into computer-aided manufacturing. Kinetic Sculpture, Robotics, Bicycle Frames, Product Design all seem to work well in this environment.
Spaces include a built-in desk area in our shared office space that includes a storage shelf and room on our material racks. Build it out to suit your needs. We are now offering shared desk spaces to keep prices down. That means that you will have access to the entire shop, but you will be sharing a desk in the office area. Get a buddy! If you find that you require an entire desk area to yourself, we're happy to do that at a discount.
