V-lab is AAU CPH's workshop supporting student projects from a diverse array of educations at AAU. Here you can construct scalemodels or models in full scale and build and test prototypes for your projects. You are always welcome to come by and get advice on how to build your models or prototypes in wood, cardboard, metal, plastic, foam or other related materials. With the tools and machines provided in the workshop, we are able to build almost anything. It is hovever important that you always get an instruction from the staff BEFORE using machines or materials that are new to you. ALWAYS ask for permission before you begin a new project and always clean up after yourself. Also mark your projects with your full name, mail-adress & phonenumber.
The V-Lab consists of different sub-labs specialized for wood processing, metal processing and computer aided machines (former FabLab). Some of the machines have relocated during the summer, so remember to ASK for help on how to use them now. Even though the machines might be the same, some of them have now been upgraded and others connected to the ventilation-system in a different way than before. IT IS CRITICAL to keep the V-Lab workshop running, that this is respected. The cost of using the machines such as Lasercutter and 3D-printers will be negotiated this year.
Depending on the instructions received you will get access to the different sub-labs and your student keycard will be opened to the corresponding rooms. An open door though still just allows you to use the machines you have received instructions for and NO others. Please come by in the office-hours if you are interested in getting access to more of the machines we have.
