Numerical Machines Workshop

In our workshop, you can acquire diverse manual skills, learn design and quick prototyping using computer numerical control (CNC) methods. Within this creative space, you will assume multiple roles – scientist, technologist, constructor, and programmer. At the same time, you will gain competencies enabling you to collaborate and partner with businesses representing various industries.

What equipment is available?

In our Numerical Machines Workshop, students benefit from a diverse range of machinery and tools, including a 3D printer and a laser cutter. These resources play a crucial role for students engaged in exploring new design spaces. The laser cutter is utilized for precision cutting and creating raster engravings on a variety of materials such as paper, cardboard, rubber, wood by-products, and acrylic (PMMA), while the 3D printers are used for quick and effective prototyping of elements, such as extruders, connectors, and other components.

Learning Opportunities

What can you learn here?

This is a space for experimentation and testing, where students from various disciplines come together. The lab is equipped to bring ideas to life at the intersection of different fields. The 3D printer can be used to print buttons, vessels, components for prototypes and even robot grippers. These items need to be initially prepared as three-dimensional models in the Rhino software. Similarly, laser-cut shapes can be used to construct modular structures made up of numerous elements.
