The RP suite featuring some models and a CNC machine

Continuous investment has seen the development of the Rapid Prototype Suite offering a range of equipment and process including reverse engineering. The purpose of the resource is to offer a number of alternative ways of creating prototypes and to give students an understanding of the types of equipment and processes used in industry. We also have a laser scanner so we are able to scan objects and re-print them or make design alterations before printing a new prototype.
