Fabrication Lab is being developed with the vision of making the new generation aware about CAD – Computer aided Design, CAM – Computer Aided Manufacturing and CNC – Computer Numerically Controlled.
Architecture has always represented the technology prevailing of its time. Now, it is the age of Information and Digital Projects. Aim is towards creating an architecture which is ‘performative’– that is, it is functional in all respects. Faster, more flexible and highly proficient systems have replaced traditional methods of design and construction.
The progress in CAD and CAM industries has now made it possible to design economically, speedily and more efficiently. Architects now explore complex geometries and undertake construction of the same with the help of CNC fabrication technologies including working with laser cutters, milling machines, and 3D printers, thus bringing in higher control and precision in construction process. Rapid prototyping at various stages in architectural projects facilitates architects to test and investigate design in a superior manner.
In this context we are equipped with a milling machine, Laser cutting machine and a 3D Printer. By tapping into this new resource and pushing the boundaries in the field of Architecture from the grass root level, we believe our students will be capable of taking greater challenges in future.
