3D printers

Additive manufacturing can here be tested and pushed towards understanding the composition of forms, material-use and the final application as additive manufacturing holds many benefits the fabrication and construction industries.

CNC Machine

This is a tool with many applications and can allow the students to combine both 3D Printing and laser cutting into the CNC environment where surface removal techniques will allow us to generate high quality finishes, complex geometries, and precise final interpretations.

Laser cutter

The precise removal of material from a surface allows us to generate flat pack designs that can be assembled on-site or in confined spaces. This tool allows us to experiment with the idea of the long known “Ikea” concept and apply this to larger scales.

Other Machinery

Experience the view over Midrand from the top of our roof. Built with innovation and creativity in mind. With this large open chill area, there is plenty space for the learners to relax and catch a breath of fresh air.
