The FabLab is our center of Digital fabrication at the school. Use it to prototype and realize your projects with complexity and precision. We offer a variety of tools for prototyping including, 3D printing and Scanning, Laser cutting, Vynil Cutting and plotting, Wire bending, thermo forming and much more. Get certified, book a tool and make your prototyping. For advanced projects, take your prototype to the next level by booking one of our advanced tools to access a variety of materials, accuracy and size options.
Food and Drink (other than water) is prohibited in the FabLab. Please ensure you pay attention to the saftey rules for the individual tools in the lab
Our FabLab technician is ready for your questions about Class bookings, Authorizations, and Technical Questions
A booking is required at all times for access to the fablab, to obtain a booking, get certified on our open tools, or make an advanced output application

A Laser cutter works by directing a high-powered laser through a lens. It can engrave and cut complex designs into materials that are non-reflective and non-metallic such as acrylic, paper, cardboard, fabric, etc. It works with vector files made using Adobe Illustrator
Theses are user-friendly, accurate, and reliable desktop 3D printer. They are ideal for prototyping, testing, and creating customized tools with PLA filament. from 'Water tight' 3D models made in Rhino, 123d Design more CAD programs.
Vinyl Cutters cut out shapes and letters from vinyl sheets with an adhesive backing that is perfect for sticking to the wall or creating a stencil. With a vector based file, you can cut and create any shape you need.
This machine helps you create molds from shapes you have made of non-melting material like clay, wood or certain types of 3d print. The plastic sheet is heated, stretched onto the mold, then it's forced against the shape by suction. This process forms plastic into any object, such as masks, molds, and more.
This portable Scanner can be used to take detailed scans of large objects and rooms. It has less detail than our Next engine, but can be taken anywhere in the school, and works very quickly on a broad variety of materials at any size. Its great for scanning people!
This turntable Scanner can be used to create detailed 3D scans of small, non reflective objects, like toys, clay models, and found objects. The resulting scan is a Mesh that can be edited in a Mesh editor like Mesh Mixer, 3Ds max, or Blender.
The Wasp 40 70 is a large scale Delta style 3D printer, it can produce prints very similar to the Ultimaker but at a very large size (40 cm Diameter by 70cm height). Test your print on the Ultimaker first at small scale then make your application.
The Dimension 3D printer makes parts at the same size as our ultimakers but our of a much denser plastic, with a little more accuracy. It also does not require a raft, and prints in a special support structure that can dissolve away in its part cleaning machine. Test out your print and apply.
The tazbot is a versitile machine that provides the same functions as our Ultimakers but in a wide range of materials, from flexible, to metalic, fibre and wood based fillaments at all. Buy your fillament, test your print first and apply. This printer can also be checked out for use by faculty in classrooms or for research.
The Form2 uses Stereo Lithographic process to make very Higher Details prints at a small scale than our Ultimakers, out of many kinds of resin, including black, clear, tough, flexible, and cast-able options. This printer is ideal for making small detailed objects which require a high level of finish and clarity
A CNC (Computer Numerical Controled) router is a machine that cuts various hard materials, such as wood, aluminium, and foams. This tool can be used to cut complicated forms, carvings, and parts at a very large scale. This machine requires constant supervision, and is only availible to students and faculty who have taken a 3 day course, and who have time to monitor the machine whilst in use
