Aalto University Digital Design Laboratory, }ADD{

The Machine Room is an environment where companies, researchers and students take part in ADD's workshops, and can showcase their research, production and technology.


Developing the infrastructure

The Machine Room is constantly developing, and the main objective is integrating design tools and fabrication technologies. It will continue to support flexible manufacturing and digital prototyping by integrating CAD software, additive manufacturing, computer-controlled fabrication machines and robots. Continuing to expand the Machine Room will allow more flexibility to develop the multi-disciplinary working environment for the purposes of ambitious product development projects and boundary-pushing design projects. The development plan includes adding higher-end machines such as Stäubli robots.
