The Robotics Lab provides training and access to developed capabilities. This includes Clay 3D Printing, Robotic Milling, and Plastic Extrusion. The Robotics Lab also provides training and access to electronics equipment (such as soldering iron) and to the Vacuum Former.
You can see a full list of capabilities on the left-hand side of the page.
The Robotics Lab does not provide a bureau service, i.e. we do not do print objects in clay on request. What we do provide is training for staff and students on how to use the equipment and capabilities in the Robotics Lab. We are also able to assist staff and students with the development of new tools and projects.
If you are a student within Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne, we can help you use any of our capabilities in your project (or as your project). We can also help you develop your own tools and/or robotic fabrication processes.
If you are a student at the University of Melbourne, please contact us to discuss what is possible.
If you are a staff member of Architecture, Building and Planning, we can help you with integrating robotic fabrication into your class, or with a research project. We are able to provide technical assistance (but are not able to provide research or teaching assistants). Please reach out to us to discuss your class or project in detail.
If you are a staff member outside of Architecture, Building and Planning, we are still open to collaborating on research projects. We have worked on research with our faculities and PhD students in the past. Please contact us to discuss.
If you are from industry, we are able to collaborate on research and development projects. Please contact us directly to discuss. Unfortunately we are unable to provide commerical job services with our capabilties. However, we are able to direct you to commerical busineses that can assist you.
