A+B Workshop

The A+B Workshop encourages students, academics and researchers to experiment with technology, materials and processes. The interdisciplinary space offers access to a variety of digital and analogue tools, with an open-plan design facilitating project collaboration.

About the workshop

The A+B Workshop provides facilities to build accurate physical models of computer-generated designs. These models are produced using a wide range of equipment including computer-controlled laser and 3D printers, as well as traditional tools and machinery.

Big enough for groups of 60 at a time, the climate-controlled workshop also has two full-time trade-qualified technicians to offer help and supervision.

Equipment and technology

The workshop includes:

  • laser cutters with multiple sizing
  • CNC router with various material compatibility
  • a range of 3D printers including Makerbots, Fortus 250 MC, German RepRap X500 and Form 2 laser resin
  • a full selection of hand tools, battery and electric tools, and timber machining facilities
  • welding facilities including Mig and Tig welding
  • selected metal working tools including sheet metal guillotine and folder as well as hand tools
  • materials available for purchase, MDF, selected card material, Perspex – all of which can be laser cut.
