Rapid prototyping laboratory

The rapid prototyping laboratory consist of multiple distributed areas at MPT Gløshaugen. This lab is actively used by students in many of our courses, as well as by master’s students and PhD students. The purpose of this lab is twofold: provide comprehensive rapid prototyping capability for all students, employees and research projects; provide an arena for master’s students and PhDs to carry out research on rapid prototyping processes. This lab is closely linked to the DAM research group and TrollLabs.
