The FabLab is the digital workspace of Sundaymorning@ekwc and has its roots in the model and mouldmaking workspace of the centre. The FabLab is now open to anyone with an idea to make a 3D object. For anyone who wants to know more about 3D drawing, scanning, editing and making, we can facilitate, advise and assist. We offer plenty of room for you to work and experiment with machines yourself.
Cad/Cam or Computer Aided Design & Computer Aided Manufacturing offers great opportunities to explore the boundaries of design and production. The FabLab at Sundaymorning@ekwc has been kitted out with the latest equipment to allow people to explore Cad/Cam’s limits, if it has any. The acquisition of software, hardware and know how lowers the threshold for professional artists, designers, architects and other interested parties to use Cad/Cam technology. The emphasis is on research and experimentation. Available equipment:
– 2 X Prusa i3 MK3, build volume 25 x 21 x 21 cm. (X-Y-Z).
