ABOUT US

The Fabrication Lab is a facility of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Westminster. We provide the analogue and digital tools, spaces and expertise to make, experiment and explore ideas through making.

CNC

The Fabrication Lab has a range of CNC machines from a tangential knife to 7 axis robotic arms. We have mills to machine topography, cut large complex 1:1 tests and smaller 'mini' mills to quickly machine smaller models, components or moulds for casting. Whatever the project, or material, whether it is 2 axis, 3 axis or more that you need we have a CNC that is suitable.

PRINTING

The Print Shop within the Fabrication Lab provides two options for large format printing.

 

 

WOODSHOP

The woodshop is at the core of the Fabrication Laboratory. Whether it is making moulds for casting or creating 1:1 models, the Woodshop is an indispensable Lab within the process of making.

 

 

LIGHT LAB

Film, Photograph, 3D scan, the process of digitally* capturing your work is all provided for in the brand new light lab. Equipped with professional studio lights, you can lights... camera... action!


*If you want to shoot analogue you are more than welcome.


USING THE LAB

The Lab is open to all currently enrolled students and staff of the Faculty. The PrintShop is available to use straight away, and you are welcome to see what is happening in the Podium Lab. For anything else, you'll need to register and do Essentials where required.

LASER CUTTING

Here in the Fabrication Lab we have four Trotec laser cutters ranging in power from 30W to 100W. These machines are ideal for detailed cutting and engraving. They are particularly suited for scale architectural models but there possibilities do not end there. They are accessible and powerful fabrication tools for beginners as well as for more advanced skill-set.

3D PRINTING

Our 3D printing facilities range from open access Makerbots that you can come, plug in and print, to more advanced printers that print in a range of materials and colours.

CASTING LAB

The casting lab is a purpose built space in which you can not only cast your moulds in a variety of materials from plaster and concrete to Jesmonite and silicone, you can also experiment with the materials you use.
