The future of designing and making
The Design and Manufacturing Futures laboratory is researching and creating the tools and technologies of tomorrow, providing game-changing capability for the design, manufacture, operation and disposal of next generation products and machines.
The potential benefits of coupling LEGO and FDM printing in a hybrid prototyping have been shown through idealised simulations, however it needs to be feasible and practical to implement for it to be a useful approach to prototyping. This figure illustrates in 2D how a design can be prototyped out of LEGO and FDM printed […]
How do you design a city? What should it look like? What would living there be like? The Design and Manufacturing Futures Lab develop new ways to design, experience and learn about the way things we use every day, from the tiny to the huge. City Blocks is an exploration into how immersive technologies can […]
Mark will be presenting an overview of the design methodology being implemented as part of his doctoral research at the 2018 CIRPe conference in the coming weeks. Below is a teaser video for what he will cover in his full talk which will follow soon!
