This space and equipment helps you to develop your conceptual, sketch and presentation models, working with materials such as timber, plastics, polyurethane foams and chemi-wood.
You'll be able to develop your projects in this well-equipped space, facilitated with expert supervision from our workshop technicians. In here you'll find bansaws, sanders, 2D and 3D hot-wire cutting and vacuum forming machinery, milling machines, lathes and drills.
We have four bandsaw machines, three SCM and one Wadkin.
These machines are a power saws with long, sharp blades consisting of a continuous band of toothed metal stretched between two or more wheels to cut material. These are used principally in woodworking, metalworking, but these can cut a variety of materials.
The Larger Bandsaw (Saracen SCM) is a Band Re-saw and this is used for larger materials and Lumbar.
We have a range of sanding machines used by students across all courses, used to prepare surfaces and furniture for a high-quality finish.
2D and 3D hot-wire cutting and vacuum forming machinery
Our hot wire cutters will aid you in cutting foam models for quick visual prototyping. Our vacuum forming machines will also allow creation of high quality plastic 3D models.

For some projects that involve creating models from wood, you'll work in this space filled with the equipment and technical expertise required to support.
You'll be fully inducted and trained to operate the machinery in our well-equipped workshop. This space is supplied with metal bending equipment, CNC lathes, 4 axis millers, plasma cutters, laser cutters, water jet cutters, and unique welding machinery.
Our prototyping workshops are the perfect place to test and develop your designs and products. You'll find student product designers, furniture designers and architectural designers in this space.
3D Printing Studio
In our 3D Printing facility, you'll be able to produce models on CAD stations and then send it to print for it to be manufactured.
