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.
As well as being the opponent for a PhD defence in Trondheim Ben also visited the TrollLAB in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The research activities of the TrollLAB focus on investigating and improving the process of the early fuzzy front end in engineering design, […]
I’ve started work on my first sprint looking at coupling additive and subtractive manufacturing (termed hybrid manufacturing) for use within digital twinning. Using the research group’s new lab space – the digital manufacturing lab at the University of Bristol – I’m going to be investigating the machining of FDM produced parts with the aim of […]
In December I visited current and potential research partners in Colombia. The main purpose of the visit was to explore research overlap between the DMF lab and La Universidad de los Andes in Bogota in areas related to the democratisation of design (the theme of my doctoral research) and also wider research areas for future […]
