We love to see our technology being used in educational settings. So, it was especially exciting to visit the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena to see how the next generation of industry leaders are being trained using Roland technology.
Example of innovative design prototypes created using Roland milling technology
Being on site to help film our recent video, it was clear that Art Center is a truly special place, designed to inspire and equip students to create amazing work. Set back in a tranquil valley, surrounded by nature, the Art Center College was a hive of furious design activity as students prepared their entertainment design, industrial design, automotive design projects and more, for finals week.

Amid all of this activity was David Cawley, Director of Model Shops and 3D Labs. Graciously, he took time out of his busy schedule to allow us to film him explaining how students use machines like the MDX-40A and other Roland devices to develop practical and scaled-down prototypes. You can watch the finished video here:
