Rapidprototyping Details:

Collaborative Robotic Arms:

 

Lasercutting:

there are two Lasercutters to work with:

- the Trotec Speedy300

- the SpiritGX

the Lasercutters need to be booked via Calendarlink ! For further Information and handling of the Lasercutters go to: TrotecHelp1, for the Speedy300, or to: SpritHelp1

We kindly ask you to try to support yourself via the Helplink, before reaching out for our personal support. If you still need help, we are more than happy to support you.

Input: Illustrator or Rhino4

 

 

3D Scanning:

there are two 3D-Scanners to work with:

- the NextEngine for smaller, more delicate Objects (Size: 100 x 100 x 100 mm)

- the Artec 3D for bigger Objects (Size: nearly no Limitations)

We give an introduction to both mashines by appointment (via mail, phone or in Person) in our workshop only! After the introduction you are more than welcome to use the mashine on your own.

Please note: The 3D-Scanners are not allowed to leave the Art School Grounds. Therefore the Object of scan interest, needs to find its way to our workshop.

Output: .obj or .stl

 

3D Printing:

there are four Ultimaker 3D-Printers in the Modelworkshop to work with:

- the Ultimaker S3 (Printbedsize: 230 x 190 x 200 mm)

- the Ultimaker 3 Extended (Printbedsize: 215 x 215 x 300 mm)

- the Ultimaker 2 Extended (Printbedsize: 223 x 223 x 305 mm)

- the Ultimaker 2+ Connect (Printbedsize:223 x 220 x 205 mm)

the 3D-Printers are accessable 24/7 in the Modelworkshop, but need to be booked via Calendarlink! For further Information and handling of the 3D-Printers go to: Help

We kindly ask you to try to support yourself via the Helplink, before reaching out for our personal support. If you still need help, we are more than happy to support you.

 

there is one Resin based Multimaterial 3D-Printer to work with:

- the Objet260 Connex3 (Printbedsize: 250 x 250 x 250 mm)

the 3D-Printer is accessable during the opening hours of the Workshop, and needs to be booked via Calendarlink!

For every different Materialproperty (From soft to solid there are 14 Shores) you need to export a separate shell, which can be uploaded as one assembly.

Input: watertight .stl

 

 

CNC-Milling:

there are three CNC-Milling Mashines to work with:

- the Datron M35 (Millingbedsize: 970 x 700 x 70mm)

(not suitable for plastermolds!)

- the Isel FlatCom M (Millingbedsize: 1017 x 600 x 70mm)

- the Isel FB2V (Millingbedsize: 470 x 670 x 70mm)

Please note: The mashines are controlled and managed by the Workshopstaff only! We make an appointment (via mail, phone or in Person) after we have seen the 3D-Model or sketch provided by you!

Input: .3dm, .stl, .obj or .igs (our CAM-Software works in an Rhino7 Environment)

 

Vacuum Casting Mashine:

 

 

 

Note: For all the mashines: Make appointments in advance!
