The Fabrication Lab is happy to provide students a collection of resources including links to alternative fabrication methods, facilities, and other workarounds that can help make model making at home under quarantine a little bit easier, efficient, and most importantly, achievable given the currently limited resources.
Grasshopper and software helpdesk
The Fabrication Lab would like to support your efforts in using Grasshopper and other computational tools. If you need assistance for this, you are welcome to write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A collection of tutorials and resources teaching the fundamentals of using software to produce architectural renders that can be applied towards many different rendering styles.
The school has an array of different machining facilities that allow you to cut, shape, and finish raw material such as metal, wood, and concrete.
The methods that we support are photogrammetry, and LiDAR scanning using either an object scanner (robotics arm) or a space scanner (portable LiDAR scanner on a tripod).
In the wood workshop you will find the school's different CNC milling machines. If you are in doubt about how to use the machines please contact the workshop staff or refer to the guide below.
This page outlines the use of the school’s robotic facilities, which comprise nine ABB IRB 120s and one ABB IRB 6620. The interesting thing about the robots is that you can use them to extend you methods of working, by designing a simple process/tool that can augment your capabilities in terms of cutting or putting something together.
