Today we are introducing the Fabrication workshop Guru! The Guru will be on the floor all day, every day, to help you with any questions you have and provide you with the information you need to get the most out of the Fabrication Workshop. Come in today and chat to our friendly Guru on the floor!


The FabLab 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 cutters, 3D Printers and CNC Routers. This technology enables students to use a wide range of materials to achieve diverse results from patterned facades to intricate hybrid structures.


The Machine Workshop is the hands-on construction zone. It is equipped with a range of power tools and hand tools from high-powered table saws to hand-driven timber planers. These facilities and tools expand the making options for students, further supported by access to experienced Machine Workshop staff if assistance is needed.


The Print & Media Hub facilitates the production of printed material within the Melbourne School of Design. This covers day-to-day printing requirements all the way to full-colour banner printing of presentations.
