Hello all,

My name is Jamie Scholl and I am currently a second year graduate student at UW-Stout.  I am finishing up my master’s in Applied Psychology and am just starting to become excited to learn more about FAB LABs and the opportunities they present!  I have limited experience working with any of the actual equipment within our FAB LAB, but have seen some of it in action and it looks pretty interesting.  I am also interested in learning what is making these labs successful for certain individuals and possibly how we can get the most out of these labs for everyone that is lucky enough to have access to them.  I look forward to meeting more of you and hearing your stories about how you became involved with the FAB LAB or your own particular FAB LAB.


Welcome to the Midwest Digital Fabrication Community of Practice!


Welcome everyone to the Midwest Digital Fabrication Community of Practice!  We have  a number of schools and organizations interested in developing resources for digital manufacturing. We have an  interest in coming together to identify common needs and interests.  Our beginning team is made of representatives from:

  • University of Wisconsin – Stout
  • Three Lakes (WI)

We are going to start our community of practice by looking at processes related to “collective impacts” to see if our collaborative efforts can move our shared interests and common needs forward. Welcome Aboard!
