Centre for Fine Print Research Open Doors

An introduction to the Centre for Fine Print Research to explore our research labs. Find out about some of research projects - a wealth of curious other things to see and get stuck into making and doing:

3D printing with our robotic arm.
A project to investigate methods for the fabrication of bespoke, patient specific support pads in auxetic foams which will provide improved fit and load distribution for patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
A 3D print process based upon historic Egyptian Faience techniques.
Laser cutting.
A demonstration of a tentacle- like 'smart puppet; made with smart materials and with flex sensor controller.
A prototype small robot that can draw and paint with inhuman speed.

The Centre for Fine Print Research aims to get the most out of digital technologies and the arts that have the power to make a difference to our lives, learn creatively, gain skills and share knowledge.

Make:Shift:Do is a nationwide programme of craft and innovation workshops taking place on 27 and 28 October 2017
