Prototyping suite

Prototyping suite

Our rapid prototyping suite helps students to turn ideas into realistic proofs of concept with the use of state-of-the-art 2d and 3d printing and fabrication.

Students can run off a working 3d prototype in less than a day, laser cut a range of 2d and 3d printed materials or use the latest dye-sublimation fabric printers to add incredible patterns to fabric.

We also have one of the world’s first and best multi-material Polyjet printers to produce detailed and precise prototypes that have a final-product look and feel.

Training is provided on specialist equipment and our helpful and friendly staff are on hand to support you in turning your ideas into working prototypes.
