Do you know your PDF from your STL? What is the process for creating a 3D solid design?

Find out at our Make it Workshop, created specifically to support design-led research and prototyping needs for industry. During this highly practical one-day programme, you will understand the capabilities of the latest fabrication tools and what you need to work with them.

Delivered by AUB 3D designers, we will help to demystify the key terminology surrounding digital fabrication and guide you through the steps required to undertake your own prototyping project. Tour our digital fabrication lab which includes 5 axis and 3 axis machining, CNC routing and SLS 3D printing facilities which are available for free access to Dorset businesses and practitioners.

Make it workshops are organised as group events. If you would like to enquire about a bespoke workshop for your business, please contact us at
