Sushant School of Art and Architecture (SSAA), Ansal University, Gurgaon has unveiled a state-of-the-art Digital Production Lab- Zyxis Studio, a first of its kind in an architecture school in India. Equipped with the latest laser cutting, engraving and 3D printing technologies, the lab built at a cost of around Rs 1.6 crore will enable students to get the best practical training in digital modeling and physical prototyping. Established in 1989, Sushant School of Art and Architecture has been rated among the top architecture schools in India by the British Council. Ansal University, Gurgaon is an autonomous university with strong international collaborations dedicated to providing advanced trans- disciplinary education.
According to Dean Dr. Rupinder Singh, Sushant School of Art & Architecture â€ś The study of architecture requires a strong intermingling of research, experimentation and learning. The launch of the Zyxis Studio will help us further train our students to achieve design quality through applied research using latest technologies like laser cutters and 3D printers. Thus, helping them emerge as better well-rounded future-proof professionals.â€ť
The lab is equipped with modern technologies such as the Laser Cutter and Engraving Machine that can enable students to cut and engrave across a range of dimensions on various materials such as paper, acrylic, leather, stone and clothes. The printer behaves just like a normal printer, which can be operated through various programs such as CorelDraw, AutoCad, Photoshop and Adobe Suite. Since it can cut or engrave on any material, as per design, it is especially beneficial for students of architecture (SSAA) in model making. The accuracy and precision will give a splendidly cut elevation for model making, and in no time students will be ready with their 3-dimensional model.
The ZPrinter 450 (3D Systems) sets the standard for speed, color, affordability and ease of use. It simplifies the 3D printing process with automated operation at every step and transforms electronic 3D data into handheld physical models. Colour dramatically communicates the proposed look, feel and style of engineering product designs.
