* COVID-19 Notice: The Fab Lab is temporarily closed, however software and fabrication consultations are available by accessing the booking portal via the below link.
Like the rest of the campus, the Fab Lab is CLOSED to all students and staff, regardless of induction level.
The Fab Lab will however continue all job submission services to support students engage with our facilities in Semester 2, 2020. You can submit a bureau job at any time through the Fab Lab Job Submission Portal, and it will be processed by our technicians and delivered contact-free to your home on completion.
The Maker Spaces team are also providing online technical support consultations via zoom. Feel free to make a booking through the relevant Maker Spaces web pages.
The Maker Spaces are advanced fabrication and making spaces that require students and staff to undergo training before they can access the services and facilities.
FabLab stocks materials available to students that should be stated in their Rhino file.
Our Knowledge Base is an always-evolving collection of guides, tutorials and curated resources for you to use and engage with the technology.
We also offer a range of commercial fabrication services including 3D computer modelling and rendering, file to fabrication production, model making, custom products, and ready designed products.
Laser cutting is a process where a high-powered laser is directed by computer software to cut or etch various types of materials to create intricate 2D shapes and surface patterns to compliment even the most intricate of model designs, or iterating quickly through a series of design variables.
The Kern LaserCell is a metal laser cutter which enables further laser cutting capabilities in processing laser jobs for metal and non-metal material of larger sheets, thicker materials or cylindrical stock, which either melt, burn, vaporize, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving a edge with a high-quality surface finish.
Resin 3D printing is a stereolithograph (SLA) form of 3D printing and is ideal for achieving complexity, detail and a polished surface finish on your geometry. Resin printing is a high quality, cost effective alternative to 3D powder printing, but is constrained by a smaller build space and lengthy build time. Book a consultation with us to start!
A CNC router is a large and powerful router precisely controlled via computer software to cut and mill various hard materials such as wood, composites, aluminium, plastics, and foams. At the FabLab we have both a 3-axis and 4-axis CNC to processes both large sheet material and cylindrical stock. Book a consultation with us to start!
