Beneath the Surface Podcast: The DarkRoom

The DarkRoom

The DarkRoom is multi-layered rapid prototyping and production program that involves a multi-faceted approach to research & development. Physically, the DarkRoom occupies close to 15,000sqft of space in our Ft. Walton Beach corporate campus. Spread throughout the space are some of the latest and greatest computer controlled machinery, highlighted by a 18’ 4-axis CNC mill and 3-D Plastic Printers. The DarkRoom isn’t just a space; its a project with a purpose.

  COMING AT YOU DIRECT, FROM THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, TO THE CENTER OF EVERYWHERE.
