At the DMF lab we collaborate with a wide range of partners, including design agencies through to manufacturers and professional institutions. Over the last few years we have developed longer term collaborative programs with CFMS, GKN, Autodesk and Amalgam Model Makers (Mike Harvey is now an industry fellow).
We are always keen to develop and explore new opportunities. If you are interested in any collaboration or longer term partnerships please get in touch with us through our “People” page.
I returned to visit la Universidad de Los Andes (Uniandes) in August this year after a pandemic induced hiatus. Prior to 2020, we had been working with Uniandes to develop proposals to do with agritech and transdisciplinary engineering. During the pandemic we were able to manage some collaboration through project clean access (leading to a […]
The DMF lab had their usual strong showing at the major conference for the research field last week, presenting 9 papers across topics ranging from prototyping to machine learning to neurocognition! This year the International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED) was held in beautiful Bordeaux, which blessed us with excellent weather, warm evenings, and one […]
In April, thanks to Pump Priming funding from the faculty and the Research Staff Development Fund, Mark and Adam travelled to the Norwegian Institute of Science and Technology (NTNU) to receive training on a Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (FNIRS) headset and to run participants through a collaborative design cognition experiment. Previously, the group had conducted […]
We are delighted to announce that the DMF lab will be attending and presenting research at the 55th CIRP conference on manufacturing systems.
We’re building the capability for anyone to connect to our Brokering Additive Manufacturing networks. All you need is a web-browser and a printer!
We are delighted to announce that the DMF lab will be attending and presenting our research at the 16th International KES Conference on Agent & Multi-Agent Systems: Technologies & Applications.
We are delighted to announce that the DMF lab will be attending and presenting our research at the 17th International Design Conference.
The DMF lab recently (remotely) attended the International Conference of Engineering Design (ICED) 2021 to present seven papers. One of these, authored by Chris Cox, Ben Hicks and James Gopsill, investigates the new language surrounding the paradigm shift towards digital engineering. This presentation was shown at ICED 2021 as part of the “Digital Twins” panel, […]
Prototyping is an indispensable activity in the product development process but what does prototyping practice in industry look like? In this video we take a ‘snapshot’ of prototyping practice from 5 companies to see how practice has evolved and understand what the characteristics of industrial practices are. This work was presented at the International Conference […]
