3D Lab (so called Rapid Prototyping laboratory) are generally used to obtain near net-shape of complex designs. This rapid prototyping/ manufacturing provides an opportunity for UID students to understand the Pro’s and Con’s of their design at early stages. In other words, filling gaps between the CAD/digital environment and real world, the lab has enabled the students to effectively translate ideas from CAD data to lifesize prototypes for testing and evaluation.
The 3D Lab at UID provides access to high-end technologies and professional expertise in computer aided 3D scanning, visualisation, modeling, prototyping applied in nearly any discipline for class-room activities. The Lab also provides design & testing facility, training and workshops, project consultations, and a collaborative workspace to students & industry. The 3D Lab has high-definition 3D digital scanners, desk-top and professional grade printers, the lab provides capabilities for precision rapid prototyping, tooling and manufacturing of highly-detailed and durable 3D objects and parts.
