Workshops - Aalto School of Arts, Design and Architecture

3D Print

The 3D Print workshop is a learning environment where students and researchers can prototype, create and investigate additive and digital manufacturing.
Arts_Infra - 3D Print 1 workshop by Jaakko Kahilaniemi

The workshop is equipped with low- to high-end machines and the latest software that are used as teaching tools and for research support in the fields of design, the arts and architecture. The studio allows for the exploration of the latest digital manufacturing technologies in 3D printing, integrating CAD software, additive manufacturing and computer-controlled fabrication machines.
