The Center for Applied Research (CfAR) in the Department of Architecture is a student focused collaborative environment for investigating emerging fabrication technologies and methods. CfAR supports the department’s core principle of thinking through making by providing a dynamic network of spaces for prototyping and applied research. Students have access to equipment, expertise, and guidance across many areas of fabrication, including CNC milling, 3D printing, woodworking, laser-cutting, and robotics.

The CfAR fabrication labs at Wentworth are available to Architecture Students sophomore year and above. Students must first complete the training module or workshop for the equipment they wish to use. See training + workshops page for more information.
