Degassing Chamber - Design Shop

Small Vacuum degassing chamber for use in moldmaking.  During mixing, air bubbles become trapped and if poured into a mold box may leave voids against part.  Degassing mixture prior to pouring reduces this risk.

Students must provide own mixing supplies and materials

Preface - A Southern Spin on Design Behaviors

Beginning in the days of inventors such as Eli Whitney and Robert Fulton, inventors of the cotton gin and steamboat, respectively, the South has built itself on technology. Neither the Old nor New South could exist without the 200 years of ingenuity, learnings, and market disruptions spurred by the region’s engineers, inventors, and thinkers. Unique to these problem solvers are a set of behaviors that span disciplines, utilizing design methodologies that promoted rapid development.

Design Shop

Located in the basement of the College of Design East building, students can use the facilities to prototype models and refine designs. There is an exterior space which is available to use 24/7 by students with proper buzzcard access, and an interior space which requires supervision and prior training.
